On February 2016 a dedicated group of parents formed a non profit organization to continue dance in South Kona. An opportunity to secure a studio in the heart of Kealakekua became available to us and we were honored to begin the journey of  continuing dance for our youth and community here in South Kona & the Big Island. 


Our Mission
Kona Dance & Performing Arts will strive to provide high quality instruction and education in dance and performing arts to the local youth and the Big Island community. Some of the prominent dance genre that will be offered during the Summer and Fall semesters range from ballet, jazz, tap,  musical theatre, hip hop and contemporary. In addition to the current classes on the schedule, we will be scheduling ongoing workshops.

Our Vision

​Every Big Island family empowered through dance and performing arts opportunities.

​Core Values
Treat others the way you wish to be treated.  Fair regard for the feelings, rights, and traditions of others is expected at all times.

We operate professionally and ethically at all times with sincerity in our actions. 

We choose to be positive. We believe in creating a supportive environment where joy and happiness is cultivated and shared between all students, staff, teachers and families.

We commit to offering an inclusive  and accessible multi-genre dance education, while providing dance and performing arts growth opportunities for all.  

The community serves as our foundation and we serve our community. Collaboration is at the heart of creating a positive and meaningful social impact for our dance families and in our community.
