Chara Dance Project Testimonies and Blog

Welcome to Chara Dance Project's Testimony and Blog page.  Here we plan to post about the amazing things God is doing in and through the people that Chara gets to come in contact with.  God is up to big things and the world needs to hear about it.  So be watching for the ways God is touching lives through dance.

Thank you Everyone

Dearest Chara Families,
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your support with Christian Dance in the Gallatin Valley. It has been an honor and a great delight to serve you and your beautiful children through the art of Dance. 

Since the pandemic in our country and COVID-19 many changes have happened with our individual staff families. All of us are now moving on to what will benefit our families the most at this time and in this season. As for me, I am feeling strongly called to the home as I’m homeschooling my three children and helping my husband with his business.
Although a difficult decision, for the time being we are Closing Chara Dance Project. We feel confident in the Lord’s leading in making this decision.  We will not be hosting dance classes this coming year.
I don’t believe this is good-bye forever. We are so thankful for the 6 years we have had to pour into this valley a great Joy of Dancing for our King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Please feel free to keep in touch via-email and to continue encouraging your little ones to dance for the Lord.  All you need is music and a heart of Worship! 
God Bless you all! Much Love in Christ Jesus Name,Krista Gazy Founder and Director of Chara Dance Project And our Staff membersElizabeth Germann Co-Artistic Director, Kara Grosfield, Danielle Holme and Emily Huffmann“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5&6
— “Let them Praise Him in the dance.” Psalm 149:3

Classes continue on hold

Dearest Families,
Just a Reminder!!
Due to COVID-19 and government requirements of non-essential businesses and social distancing! We are postponing our Dance Season Until the Government lifts the Mandate. Each teacher has emailed out your specific class Dance Practice Video. There will be no Virtual Classes due to the fact we are interactive with the children. If you did not receive the practice dance video please let me know. If you wish do discontinue with us, let me know. We are in High Hopes our Season could start up again in May if the Mandate is Lifted, with 4 weeks of Dance and one wonderful Concert in June!

Passing on the info from the Governor on our Shelter-in-place order for those that may not have seen it.

Week 4 and 5 Devotions

Hi Chara Families,

Happy Week #5 This week your children are learning one of our favorite verses. Zephaniah 3:17 “The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you, in his love he will not longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” Rejoice or Joy(Chara) means to Dance. How does that make you feel that God Dances and Rejoices over your Life? 

Last week Week #4 We went over Psalms 30:11 “You have turned my mourning into dance; you have loosened my sackcloth and girded me with Gladness.” I know this rings true for my personal testimony. The Lord literally turned all sadness and depression into Gladness and Dancing at the age of 13! And I’ve been dancing ever since. What is your testimony of the Lord changing things around for you and bringing your tears to joy? 
Blessings to you and yours!
