Keeping our keiki active through dance, tumbling, fitness and mentorship programs


The mission of Thrive with Movement is to provide Kauai's children and youth with a safe, healthy, and fun environment to cultivate their physical and creative development through dance, tumbling, and theater. We strive to provide our students with pathways to experience the joys of physical activity, develop their motor skills, and deepen their understanding of the performing arts. We believe that with our guidance and support, our students can learn to express themselves, gain confidence, and foster a lifelong appreciation for the arts.

We are excited to offer scholarships for students from low-income families, at-risk children, and current students with the potential to excel in performing arts. We know that providing access to the performing arts can have a huge impact on the development of a young person and we are committed to helping those who may otherwise not have the opportunity. We have developed a comprehensive scholarship program that includes financial support, mentorship, and guidance from experienced professionals. We also have a team of dedicated volunteers who are ready to assist with any questions and provide support for students who receive a scholarship. We hope that this program will provide an outlet for creativity and personal growth for those who receive it.


At Thrive With Movement, we believe in empowering our keiki and youth to reach their full potential through the performing arts. We provide a range of classes in many styles, levels and age groups, tailored to the needs of each individual, that allow for creative expression and exploration. We believe that by engaging in the performing arts, people can gain confidence, develop self-awareness, and grow into well rounded human beings. Our programs focus on building these skills and fostering positive change in the lives of those we serve. We are committed to helping our participants discover and nurture their unique talents, and to providing them with the support they need to take their dreams further.


Your donations can help make a difference in the lives of children in need here on Kauai.   With your support, we can help provide them with the resources they need to develop their talents, pursue their dreams and reach their full potential. Your donations can help sponsor a child in their activities for the semester, covering tuition and costuming for performances. With your generosity, you can help them to learn, grow and reach new heights. Thank you for supporting our cause and for your generosity.

Thrive With Movement is dedicated to providing realistic, yet creative, career opportunities for our youth.  We are committed to developing leadership and interpersonal skills, such as communication, collaboration, and problem-solving beyond the dance community. Our assistant programs and student-teacher mentorship programs provide a variety of opportunities to do so; communicating with the Lead teacher on the daily lesson plan, teaching and correcting technique and choreography in the classroom, volunteering at community events, and more so. We also aim to provide students with resources to help them find the best post-secondary education options for their particular interests and goals; even if it may not be dance-related, our goal is for them to become contributing members of society in their own productive way. Additionally, we strive to create a safe and supportive environment where students can hone their professional skills and build a strong sense of belonging and community. By actively engaging in our leadership opportunities, our students can gain the confidence necessary to succeed in their academic and professional pursuits.
