New Space, New Name
We are venturing into a vibrant new season!
For 3 decades the school (formerly Charisma Centre for the Arts) was generously housed and stewarded in the ministry wing of Christian Assembly Church. Our community is so grateful for many wonderful years of learning and friendship at CA. Life-giving growth and change transpired over these years! Xclaim was born. Talents were nurtured. Visions came to life.
With the retirement of beloved director Daryse Osborne, the church felt it was time to begin a new chapter. In the spring of 2019 Daryse passed the baton of leadership on to Mariah Layne French, who had spent many years as instructor, administrator and recital director. With this transition, Ms. French, along with the Xclaim Board of Trustees, moved for the not-for-profit to officially adopt the school. 2019-2020 was spent paving a path for continued growth!
In 2020, the company and school together begin a beautiful new collaboration with The Indianola Church, as Xclaim Centre for the Arts!
