Kaua‘i Dance Theatre’s 23rd season began in August with new summer and fall term of classes: creative movement, ballet/pointe, tap and jazz dance offered in Kalaheo and Lihu‘e for ages 4 through adult. New students are placed in levels suitable to their age, ability and previous training. The term concludes with a student showcase performance on Dec. 13.
Director Janie Crane has been involved in the world of dance for over 40 years and strives to instill a love of dance in all students from the youngest aspiring preschool ballerinas to adults who appreciate the grace, exercise and health benefits that dance offers.
After many years of study and six years with a ballet company, Crane began her teaching career on Kaua‘i in 1986. Over the years she has inspired students to have not only a passion for dance itself but also to maintain a healthy lifestyle through the physical and mental exercise that dance demands.
Kaua‘i Dance Theatre’s spring performance of “Alice in Wonderland” benefited their scholarship program and the Kaua‘i Humane Society — this year’s local nonprofit organization recipient.
