Chara Cares

Chara Cares Chara Christian Dance Academy logo

One of our favorite ways to give back to our Chara families is by blessing expecting mothers with a hot meal soon after they have welcomed their child into the world. A member of our staff will order and deliver the meal personally at time convenient for the family. If you know an expecting or new mother at Chara, please let the front desk know or e-mail us at characares@gmail.com, so we can schedule a time to bring the family a meal.  Thank you!

The Part of the Art Foundation’s mission is to award dance scholarships to children of public servants, clergy, foster families, and single parents, who exhibit both talent and financial need.  The foundation was established in 2017 by our very own Chara Owner/Director Shanna Kirkpatrick who is the daughter of a firefighter and now wife of a pastor. Part of the Art broadens the scope of giving that can be done in and around the Clear Lake region, granting children who possess great passion but little financial power an opportunity to be a part of the art of dance!
