Winter Session 2020

In accordance with the most recent order by the City & County of Honolulu, implementing Tier 2 of COVID-19 recovery framework, Ballet Hawaii’s indoor studio locations remain closed and classes with the school of Ballet Hawaii are taking place virtually.


Our Winter session began November 8, 2020 on Zoom and will run until February 27, 2021. We will be moving forward on a month-to-month basis, reassessing our safety at the end of each month, and determining whether we can open the studios safely.  Tuition is currently being billed in 4-week increments to maximize flexibility for our students and parents.


Our Board of Directors takes Ballet Hawaii's mission to heart - to teach, present, promote, and produce dance in Hawaii. They are determined that we maintain the highest standard of teaching while also maintaining the health and safety of our staff and students.

  • With the understanding that it is hot, you are permitted to wear stretchy shorts in place of tights/skirt if desired.  Please see the dress code tab for more information on appropriate attire.
  • If the device you are logging in on has a camera, please let it on for the entirety of your class and position it so that most of your body is visible.  If your teacher cannot see you, they are unable to give individualized feedback.
  • The chat feature is to be used to communicate with your teacher only, however, whenever possible, please raise your hand and unmute yourself to communicate with your teacher unless it is a private question.
  • If you are having technical difficulties, please respectfully let the teacher know, but understand that it is not possible for the teacher to help troubleshoot all technical issues.  You may need to grab a parent to help you.
