Throughout each dance year, KaRAR’s Performing Arts’ programs directly impacts and influences each enrolled student. Students from various cultural backgrounds, schools, and neighbourhoods have the opportunity to come together within the studio, and often form lasting relationships that extend beyond the theatre.
Many of the students comment on how the studio feels like ‘family’ to them, and despite the long hours of work and effort put in by each student, we often hear that they love spending time at the studio. By establishing a safe haven for many of these preteen and teen students, instilling confidence in them, and providing them the opportunity to form positive connections with one another, KaRAR is proud to say that we play an important role in creating future role models and leaders in our community.
KaRAR’s involvement in the community is ongoing. We actively participate in many events throughout the year with the intent of making positive changes in our community:
During the holiday season, select dance classes attend senior homes to share with residents their love of dance. Time after performances is allocated for students to spend moments of their time with residents (cookies and tea/juice). In past years, KaRAR has participated in the community’s Festival of Trees.Each year, KaRAR actively participates in the town’s Farmer Day Parade.We have hosted private events to help support members in our community (e.g., Courage and Kindness Project).Ongoing student sponsorship.
