Tech Enabled Studio

Chara is now a Tech Enabled Studio to accommodate students remote participation as needed! We want to ensure that every student has the opportunity to attend class whether it be in person or remotely from home.  Whether it is due to illness or personal preference, students can log in through our Virtual Studio to attend their dance or music classes LIVE.  Each class is broadcast live, role is taken for students in person and remote, and all students are able to engage in dance or music instruction.
