New York Stars marching band needs new space

The New York Stars Twirling and Marching Band lost their practice space and they fear they are now one performance away from losing their group.

"We lost our space, because our school turned into a charter school, and now with the winter coming we will not have a place to go," said Kim Morel-Betances, one of the directors of the New York Stars.

The New York Stars is a Washington Heights-based group with the mission to provide children with the art of baton twirling, color guard, and marching band musicianship.

They have 65 kids, between the ages of 7 and 20 years old.

They immediately need a connection to find a place to practice in the Washington Heights area every Saturday.
