Hello, We are the Camacho Family and we just wanted to take a minute to introduce ourselves. My name is Andrea and my husband, Caleb, and I direct The Centre School of Dance and love serving the children and families in our community. We have a six year old son, Aran who is heading into first grade this year. We have a passion for dance, for excellence, for people, and for Jesus. It is our great joy to combine these passions to provide a safe place for children to discover their own gifts and passions, grow as artists, and discover the love of God through worship and dance. We can’t wait to get to know more about you and your family, so from our family to yours… WELCOME! We are so glad you are here. May the Lord bless you and keep you and cause His face to shine upon you.
