*NEW Aspire Program!
Aspire is a teacher training program. Students having passed level 3 training are welcome to register for the Aspire Program.
The purpose of the Aspire Teacher Training program (ATT) is to raise up dancers from within our own school to become leaders and future Karar instructors. The ATT 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 ATT 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.
Karar's founder, Holly Hutchens, has relocated to Spring Valley, MN and is opening a Karar branch in her home! She will continue to support the WI studio by serving as off site Artistic Director, in charge of teacher training.
Proudly located in the Clear Lake Area Community Center.
3rd floor, room 306
Due to the recommendations from the CDC and the Wisconsin Department of
Health, Karar Academy will not hold classes through April 24. We are emailing classroom instruction and posting assignments on our private Facebook group.
We are watching the recommendations closely. It is our hope that we will still be able to hold an end of the year celebration including classroom presentation of the recital song prepared by the students.
