On Friday, February 11, Governor Carney announced the expiration of the Universal Indoor Mask Mandate. However, because Christina Cultural Arts Center still serves early childhood and other students categorized in the K-12 classification, we will still mandate ALL staff, parents, students, and visitors wear masks while in our facility. In addition to this policy, we are still requiring staff to be tested bi-weekly for COVID.

Our number-one priority is the health and safety of ALL who enter our facility, which ultimately assists to further our mission. Please direct any questions or concerns to my attention at 302.652.0101.

Be safe, be well!

James "Ray" Rhodes, Executive Director

SHOUT-OUTS & CELEBRATIONS

We send honors and congratulations to CCAC Dance Instructor, Dara Jomani Meredith who received her official certification as an Umfundalai dance teacher on Sunday, February 13!

This certification was very important to her, especially after losing her mentor -- the founder and creator of Umfundalai technique, Dr. Kariamu Welsh -- in October.

Enjoy this video of Dara in performance of an Umfundalai-inspired piece:
