Outdoor Classes Now Available!

In an effort to keep our skaters active and healthy during this unfortunate interruption to our ice facilities we are pleased to announce our off-ice Introduction to Dance Series.  Working with three of our very talented instructors that not only have an expertise in skating but also excel in some specialized dance styles we are able to offer these classes.  

 

In accordance with the state county mandates all classes will be taught outside.  Due to the central location and the size of the area we have decided our Fremont facility parking lot is best suited for our needs.

Hula Taught By Alyssa Lewis

The Benefits of Hawaiian Dance

  1. Body
    1. Provides physical toning, targeting the hips, stomach, thighs, calves, and arms.
    2.  Provides both a Low-impact and Cardiovascular workout. Depending on the tempo of the songs, some hulas require slow, smooth, and graceful movements while others are faster paced.
    3.  Strengthens back muscles and posture.
    4.  Improves your motor coordination. Coordinating the steps with arm and hip movements can be harder than it looks. 
  2. Mind
    1.  Helps enhance your memory. Memorizing the steps is only one part of Hula. Dancers also learn the meanings of the movement, stories, myths, and legends behind the dances.
    2.  Develops Cultural Awareness and Respect.
    3.  Dancers learn to understand and speak Hawaiian words as they interpret the lyrics of the songs all room and chants into dance.
  3. Spirit
    1.  Helps to ease tension and stress. Many of the Hawaiian songs are about nature; the waves, wind, flower, rain, clouds, etc.…  Visualizing and interpreting the words with movement can mentally transport you to the Islands, connect you to nature and provide a spiritual experience. 
    2.  Experience the “Spirit of Aloha” by building lifelong friends. The people you meet become your "Hula Sisters, Brothers & Ohana".
