Alexander Academy expanded in September 2012 by establishing the 501(c)(3) nonprofit Alexander Academy Performing Company.
The Company's mission is to provide accessible, high-quality dance instruction and performance opportunities to the Maui community. Through the art and discipline of dance, we empower students to embody the aloha spirit, identify their self-respect and compassion, and feel connection. Our values develop socially responsible citizens through connection between mind, body and community.
All students are offered two performance opportunities (Spring and Fall Semesters). While all performances are optional, we encourage performance as an important aspect of dance training. The experience of performing helps build self-esteem and confidence, which can result in better in-school presentations, improved social skills, and strong college and job interview skills. The rehearsal process is a tremendous learning experience as well. It helps the children develop retention skills, and by working with their classmates on a group performance, they learn the positive aspects of collaborating as a team to create the best end result.
Auditions are held at the beginning of Spring and Fall Semesters, providing valuable experience for future endeavors.
In the same spirit as the school, the Performing Company offers scholarships to dancers who are unable to perform due to financial barriers.
