Beginning Aug. 4 the “Dance Force One” program will offer an expanded version of the program launched by Jennifer and Mel Bell-Grey of Royal Ballet Kaua‘i Academy in March. The new program encompasses a wide range of dance activities, including hip hop, Spanish Flamenco styles, private classes and the Royal Ballet Kaua‘i Academy program. Over the last 10 years, RBKA has offered dance classes and multimedia shows to the Kaua‘i community.
Dance Force One and Royal Ballet Kauai Academy foster a welcoming atmosphere that encourages students to do their best. The training enhances education through discipline, mental acuity, teamwork and camaraderie. Visit danceforceone.com for information on the summer session.
“Dance Force One’s” year-round structured program offers an extra-curricular dance activity that will enhance a child’s life by building poise, confidence and good exercise habits. “Dance Force One” offers an extensive curriculum and culminates with an original theatrical production where students have the opportunity to dance and perform for their friends and family. Founders Jennifer and Mel Bell-Grey have over 10 years of teaching experience on Kaua‘i and over 30 years of combined training and experience in dance education, choreography and theatrical production.
