*NEW Aspire Program!
 Aspire is a teacher training program.  Students having passed level 3 training are welcome to register for the Aspire Program.  

AP Teacher Training  

The purpose of the AP is to raise up dancers from within our own school to become leaders and future Karar instructors.  The AP will provide our school with dancers, well trained and equipped to stand up and lead a single class at a moments' notice or as planned long term instructors and/or program leaders/directors.  This leadership training must be strongly bent to the heart of the participant.  While they must know how to teach ballet technique, they must foremost have a heart for the Lord their God and be ready to lead in prayer and simple Bible Studies. Whether an AP participant stays within Karar or moves on, we hope to equip them with leadership skills that will serve them well in any walk of life.  More information is available upon request.

Aspire Teacher Training Program is new and we are leaving room for adjustment as needed.
