Charmed and Cherished is a faith-based Performing Arts, Youth Enrichment and Leadership Development Ministry for children, young adults, & their families. Leveraging our community relationships, we strive to enhance our youth's spiritual & cultural exposure. Charmed and Cherished offers self-development opportunities using both a robust curriculum and provide spiritual guidance. The program's purpose is to engage the students and their immediate family support providing tools, confidence, and knowledge to be better than they were yesterday. Our core values are set on the promises of Christ and the vision is to strengthen the values of our youth.
Our primary focus is girls ages 12 - 19 but also provide activities to families with children ages 4 - 19. Through Project-based learning (PBL) engaged students learn not only the curricula and the concepts involved in a project, but also learn how to organize and present their thoughts, how to manage a complex project in a limited amount of time, and how to collaborate with members of a group.
Through a contemporary technique class and liturgical choreography, the students begin with a warm-up that prepares the participants to learn to work from within to cultivate deeper physical connections while discovering their individual and unique voice. All participants collaborate in designing and implementing a project-based annual dance production.
