Library Programs

Cara Zara’s entertainment style is a delightful combo of Elmo, Peter Pan, and Glinda the Good Witch. She loves to educate in a playful silly way. Library programs are customized for each year’s summer reading theme. Cara Zara will bring your to your library an interactive show that encourages the participation of more than a couple of “volunteers”. She likes to get all of the children involved in the act.

My girls have enjoyed Cara Zara’s after school program and summer camp multiple times and always ask for more. Cara is more than fun – she has the spirit that we all want to share with our children. The skills that are learned go way beyond just exercise. She teaches rhythm, self confidence and all around good, clean fun. I highly recommend this to all students. There is no such thing as too much fun.

I worked for many years with Cara in her role as a children’s entertainer and educator at Waxhaw North Carolina festivals that I managed. Cara is full of enthusiasm and high-energy that is contagious. Children and adults are instantly attracted to her lively spirit. Cara knows how to work a crowd and get everyone involved in her performances. The best part is you were actually getting a fitness workout while engaging in Cara’s activities without knowing, because she made them so fun and entertaining. Cara is a pleasure to deal with and I would whole-heartedly recommend her.
