OUR MISSION

When our founders Keone & Mari started this program in 2014 it was because of the many voices they heard of dancers around the world. “I need more than a class,” “I’m too shy for class,” “How can I train more in-depth with you?” and more importantly “I need a mentor.” We are not here to replace the method of training via class or company, but we are here to build upon that by providing a more personalized, in-depth experience. 

An experience that cultivates an environment of learning, growth and results. An experience to not just build dancers, but also build relationships. Currently, we are in the works of building a fully-immersive, multi-faceted dance program for students like you. Keep a look out for an announcement coming soon!

1 Thessalonians 5:11 says “Therefore encourage and build each other up, just as you are doing.” This is our mission. To encourage and to build any and all people through dance.

Our Mission

When our founders Keone & Mari started this program in 2014 it was because of the many voices they heard of dancers around the world. “I need more than a class,” “I’m too shy for class,” “How can I train more in-depth with you?” and more importantly “I need a mentor.” We are not here to replace the method of training via class or company, but we are here to build upon that by providing a more personalized, in-depth experience. 

An experience that cultivates an environment of learning, growth and results. An experience to not just build dancers, but also build relationships. Right now we are only located in Carlsbad, CA (northern San Diego), but our dream is to house this program around the world. Until then, we sincerely hope to offer this experience to you in the near future here in California.

1 Thessalonians 5:11 says “Therefore encourage and build each other up, just as you are doing.” This is our mission. To encourage and to build any and all people through dance.
