Have you ever dreamed of being a rock star?  So many people dream of being on the stage and hearing the crowd chant your name, sing along with you, and send you off the stage with a standing ovation.  We like to make dreams come true at the Down Syndrome Association of Greater St Louis.

DSAGSL's Rock 21! is a program for individuals with Down syndrome to perform in a rock band with a professional musician. They are placed in bands and practice for 8 weeks and then end the program with a concert at a super cool venue!
