Our Story

Clarion Center for the Arts was founded in 2013 with a passion for using the arts to make a difference and teaching kids to do the same. If you're looking for an after school activity that shares your same values and priorities as a parent, we're the answer! We'll use Dance, Music and Theatre to help your kid grow into a Compassionate, Confident, Creative young leader who is ready to change the world. Let us partner with you today!    

Compassion. Confidence. Creativity.

BreAnna Liberto

Founder & Director

BreAnna grew up studying piano, voice, dance and theatre and has always known that she would be working within the world of performing arts for the rest of her life. She first dreamed of opening a performing arts school in 8th grade and even then she wanted it to be a place that taught kids character alongside artistry and technique. She's been quoted saying, "If the arts aren't being used to make a difference, then they're being wasted." When she's not at the Center, BreAnna can be found spending time with her incredible husband and their amazing boxer puppy, Plutarch!

Bethany Tarr

Family Engagement Champion

Bethany has been the wife to Chad and the mum of 5 amazing children exclusively for the past twelve years  but decided recently to reinvest in and pursue her love for the Arts. Bethany grew up playing the alto sax and piano, first teaching herself to play for 5th grade band and then joining multiple pit and jazz bands at high school and college levels. She loves working at CCA where her compassion for the Arts and people are being realized in an authentic way. Bethany enjoys singing, dancing and praising her God, along with anything involving her family as long as they are together!

Janet Amoroso

Dance Coach

Ms. Janet grew up dancing in a small studio before majoring in dance at Point Park University. She is certified by The Fred Astaire Tap Dance Association, Acrobatic Arts, Cecchetti Council of America and Dance Masters of America. She has been teaching for 40 years and has had the pleasure of seeing her students perform on Broadway, in the Radio City Rockettes, at Disney, on cruise ships, in national commercials, Las Vegas, and modern dance companies in Chicago and New York. In her free time, Ms. Janet loves watching movies with her family, eating Mallow Cups and walking her poodle, Fred.

Hannah Frederick

Dance Coach

Hannah has been dancing since the age of 4 and found her second home at CCA. She was with CCA when it opened in 2013 and jumped right in as a Student Assistant before becoming a teacher the next year. She is currently studying Early Childhood and Special Education at Clarion University and is thrilled to be CCA's certified Rhythm Works instructor. In her free time, Hannah enjoys watching cheesy movies and eating peanut butter. She hopes to one day achieve her dream of creating a viral cooking channel on YouTube.

Katie Roth

Dance Coach

Katie started dancing when she was just 3 1/2 years old. (She and Ms. BreAnna have some crazy dance memories together as they grew up dancing in the same classes!) She graduated from Slippery Rock University with a degree in Exercise Science and a double minor in Dance and Psychology. Her full-time job as the Health and Wellness Director at the Oil City YMCA keeps her busy during the day, but she loves coming and hanging with all her Acro kiddos in the evening! When she's not at the Y or CCA, she loves spending time outdoors with her family!

Kaylar Moser

Dance Coach

Kaylar has been dancing ever since she could walk, driving her parents crazy twirling up and down grocery store aisles. In high school, she was dance class captain and while serving in that capacity she was able to choreograph numerous pieces for her fellow dancers. She has been able to continue to pursue her love for dance in college where she is currently in her second year as dance captain for the Clarion University Dance Team. When Kaylar isn't running around campus trying to survive her senior year, she can be found at home cuddling with her rascally kitten, Theodore Harvey.
