CHAKARA ROSA is grateful to be part of the Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe again this year. She most recently appeared in The Wiz. Chakara has performed with the Sarasota Contemporary Dance Company as well as performing in WBTT’s Young Artist showcases earlier in the year. She maintains her technique by dancing with Sarasota's Cuban Ballet School and enjoys yoga twice each day. Chakara frequently serves as a substitute teacher of aerobics for senior citizens at Faith Church in Sarasota. She plans to continue using her gift of dance whenever she gets the opportunity.
