Becoming a dancer at Chara Christian Dance Academy means something special! Dancing is an art form and a sport that commands the respect and commitment of those who embody it. Dancers, in turn, earn a unique respect and admiration for their ability to exhibit the grace and skill that it takes to dance. By developing good etiquette, dancers are inviting the opportunity to enhance not only their life with an amazing activity but they instill in themselves, important lifelong character traits such as poise, self-confidence, perseverance, respect, pride, compassion, and love for their art.
