Ballet Hawaii

Ballet Hawaii has been enriching Hawaii's cultural environment by teaching, promoting, presenting, and producing dance since 1976. Originally a support group for the Honolulu City Ballet, this non-profit organization provides opportunities for self-growth, while instilling self-esteem and pride in its students, patrons and audiences. Its classes are focused on building self-confidence through accomplishment, while its presentations of world-class performances provides the community with the priceless gift of professional quality dance.

Toward its mission of presenting, promoting and teaching dance in Hawaii, Ballet Hawaii:

  • * produces an annual Nutcracker Ballet at the Blaisdell Concert Hall with accompaniment by the Honolulu Symphony Orchestra and guest artists from leading international ballet companies.

  • * presents highly acclaimed dance companies that have included Baryshnikov & Co., Stars of American Ballet Theatre, Mark Morris Dance Group, Pilobolus, Paul Taylor Dance Theatre, Ballet Stars from San Francisco and Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo.

  • * provides a year-round training program for pre-ballet through advanced students.

  • * engages international Master Teachers to teach at the intermediate and advanced levels.

  • * conducts a three week Summer Intensive session, featuring teachers from the international dance community that attracts students from around the world.

  • * provides outreach programs throughout the community and neighbor islands to reach new audiences and create more interest in dance.

The school's goal is to enrich student's lives through dance, enhance self-awareness and self-discipline and to introduce them to other art forms. The program also counsels students on health issues. As representatives of the school, each student is encouraged to fulfill a professional etiquette of the highest standards.

Ballet Hawaii prides itself on the quality and professionalism of its operation. The faculty is of the highest caliber and welcomes comments and input regarding any and all aspects of the school. The program represents an inclusive vision to reach people of all backgrounds and abilities through the art of dance. This mission is a collective effort based on non-competitive and positive support, creating a pleasant environment for artistic endeavors to thrive.

The School requires some general guidelines so that all dancers and parents experience a healthy, productive environment. Please read over these guidelines.
