LLD Programs

Performing & Creative Arts Program

LLD PERFORMING AND CREATIVE ARTS  —  A program consisting of music, dance, drama and stage production classes, taught by experienced professionals in the arts and entertainment industry.  Our broad curriculum exposes students to all aspects of the performing and creative arts, widens their range of experiences and provides each student the opportunity to discover their hidden talents.

My Hearts' Art Program

LLD MY HEARTS’ ART  —  This program provides opportunities for artistic creativity and expression through painting, drawing, arts and crafts, ceramics and sculpture.  Those who cannot easily express words vocally are encouraged to express feelings through their art. Our showcases enable students to display their work in public locations.  My Hearts’ Art liberates the soul and brings joy to the heart of the beholder.

Starlite/Starbright Program

LLD STARLITE/STARBRITE  —  This program unites Starbrites (special needs students) with Starlites (who serve as mentors).  Working together unites and serves the greater needs of our community by creating awareness about people with special abilities.  Participating in various creative projects together affords both Starlites and Starbrites the opportunities to improve interpersonal skills, develop their artistic skills and build lifelong friendships.

Big Starz/Little Starz Program

LLD BIG STARZ/LITTLE STARZ  —  A program providing LLD students with inspiration to reach for the stars, while developing the skills needed to help them achieve their lifelong dreams.  Thanks to the generosity and support of local professional entertainers (Big Starz), this exciting program offers Little Starz (LLD students) continuing opportunities to interface with Big Stars, who act as mentors in offering insight into the entertainment world.

Our Founders

Cathy Warriner & Tshlene Henreid

TSHLENE HENREID (Co-Founder/Co-Executive Director)

Born in Oakland, California, Tshlene Henreid is trained in modern, classical ballet and jazz.  She began her professional dance career in 1980, performing in numerous dance concerts, festivals and musical theater productions throughout the Pacific Northwest.  In 1986, Tshlene obtained her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Dance from Cornish Institute of Allied Arts in Seattle.

After graduating, Tshlene began touring abroad with various dance companies, as well as working on film and television projects such as Harlem Nights (starring Eddie Murphy), and the HBO Special “Partners In Crime”(starring Robert Townsend), to name a few.

But, as fate would have it, in 1989 Tshlene was diagnosed with severe Rheumatoid Arthritis.  Soon thereafter, she found out that the disease would debilitate her entire body for years to come. Nonetheless, in 1992, Tshlenes’ resilient nature led to her opening a SAG franchised talent agency in Hollywood, California, where she quickly began booking clients in film and television projects such as General Hospital, Party of Five, The Temptations Mini Series, The Last Samurai and many more. Most recently, Tshlene launched Cypress Entertainment in 2008, and is currently developing a talent management division for children and adults with special needs.

Cathy Warriner & Tshlene Henreid

CATHY WARRINER (Co-Founder/Co-Executive Director)

Cathy Warriner was born in Provo, Utah and attended Brigham Young University. In 1982, she moved to Seattle, where she spent several years training city, school and federal agencies in emergency preparedness.  She is an accomplished teacher and public speaker. She has managed several businesses as well as organizations working with women and teens.

Cathy is an accomplished bronze sculptor and has showcased her pieces in several art galleries throughout the United States.  She is currently publishing her first series of children’s books, which are based on true stories about her son, Zach, that will inspire and uplift every child who reads them to do the great things that they are entitled and meant to do.

Cathy is the proud mother of 6 children (4 are adopted) and has 13 wonderful grandchildren.  She and her husband have raised several children with special challenges. Their youngest son, Zach, who has Down syndrome, was the inspiration behind Life Long Dreams.   Cathy believes every child has been given unique and special gifts that they can use to make the world a better place. This belief was the driving force that motivated her to provide the opportunity for children with special needs to perform in public and express their beautiful personalities through the Fine Arts.
