Here is what parents just like you are saying about Chara Christian Dance Academy!
"My daughter told me that Chara feels and smells like home. She said she knew that she belongs there. From a 7 year old, that's saying a lot! Thanks for making my child feel at home at your studio."
Thank you Chara for all you do for these girls. This years recital was so moving and FUN. The wholesome approach to expressing themselves in dance is more than I hoped for. The girls work hard and dance hard all year but barely notice because they are having fun. We appreciate the opportunities to perform, make lasting friendships, and worship our Lord with this part of their lives. My husband and I feel so blessed we have a Christian studio to send our girls and trust they are cared for, inside and out.

"We have loved our experience at Chara. As our girl continues to grow as a dancer, we are thrilled that the expectations, techniques, and support grow with her through Chara's thoughtful and intentional direction. She is really beginning to thrive, and we credit Chara for her development in skill, confidence, and understanding about what it means to grow her talents as she seeks to live with divine purpose."
My daughter selected Chara’s Dance Academy when she was six years old. I asked her what it was about the studio that attracted her. She said it was the look and feel of it all. I believe Chara is God’s gift to us. This dance studio is amazing and it is truly a blessing to be a member of it. My daughter loves and cherishes her teachers. She feels a special bond with each teacher and is inspired by their skills and love for dance. My daughter has grown so much in her dance abilities and in faith, by glorifying God through her dance at Chara. I love the music, costumes, and dance curriculum. The staff is also wonderful. They care for each family and student and go out of there away to be of service to us. Ms. Shanna, the Director, is the sweetest person, with a big heart and she truly cares for each student. My daughter always smiles and wants to hug Ms. Shanna when she sees her. It is evident that I appreciate Chara Dance Academy and its staff for their gifts and talents. I highly recommend this studio for your children to grow in faith for God and their love for dance.
After moving several times in the last few years and being a part of many dance studios, we feel very blessed to be a part of Chara. It’s a dream for me as a mother for my girls to dance for a true Christian dance academy. The programs at Chara reinforce the beliefs that we seek to instill in our children. The staff has a genuine passion to use dance as a form of worship. They provide a great balance of fun and structured learning. Thank you to Shanna and her staff for providing a “DREAM” studio for kids!!!
“My daughter loves Chara Dance Academy! The teacher does an incredible job teaching the young girls. She makes it fun, while also teaching and implementing the proper ballet techniques and terms. As a parent, I love seeing her shining the light of Christ to my daughter through great worship music, prayer time and just loving on the girls. What a gift!”
“We have 2 daughters that attend Chara Dance (2nd and 6th grades) They both absolutely love coming to class! We feel that they are getting quality, challenging instruction that really stretches them physically. We love that all the music glorifies God, no matter what style- That is what we have been looking for, for years! We tell all our friends about Chara!”
“What we love most about Chara Dance is the compassion that is shared among the girls and the teachers. It is a very positive atmosphere and everyone is accepted no matter what their level of dance experience is. Learning dance moves and being able to worship the Lord is the BEST part. My daughter is very excited each week and I am glad that we have decided to join this dance group.”
Our daughter thoroughly enjoys dance class and looks forward to going each week. Her teacher is very patient, friendly, and helpful with the girls and has a gentleness in her that reflects the light of Jesus through her teaching. What a blessing for us as parents to watch the teacher share her love with the children and teaching them to glorify Him through dance.”
