Why choose 'Ohana Arts Studio, LLC?
* 'Ohana (family) comes first - I offer many family-friendly classes. Families are welcome and I offer a family discount on all of my studio classes.
* Our mission is to honor and perpetuate the traditions of our past. It is my goal to spread the aloha spirit by teaching and sharing these traditions with others.
* Quality instruction: Learn using professional programs with successful, progressive curriculums.
* The director/ head instructor is patient, caring, and safety-minded. I am a mom to 5 children. I also have had background searches via Girl Scouts, Newport News parks and rec, and York County parks and rec. I also maintain current first aid and cpr certification. Safety is number one with me.
* We offer unique services: hula, sewing, and more all under one roof!
* I was born and raised in the islands so you will definitely get a genuine cultural experience. Our dances are authentic and traditional with colorful and culturally-accurate costuming and choreography. Many of our dancers are real islandgirls, too!
