DANCE CLASSES

We are happy to report that dance classes have returned to the Barefoot Hawaiian for the Fall of 2022 after the long pandemic shutdown.  

We are re-launching our dance class program with a new format and location.  Our new location for classes is now in the Dance Room of the Frisbie Senior Center in Des Plaines, Illinois.  Yes! Our dance classes are still in Des Plaines.

We are starting off the Fall 2022 season with adult classes only.  Due to the concerns parents still have for their children with Covid still a significant factor in all our lives, combined with children restarting educational school this fall, the Barefoot Hawaiian has decided, in the interest of health and safety, to keep children's classes on hiatus until we see the outcome of children's re-entry back into school this fall.

As for format, we are starting things off slower than we have traditionally done for our fall class line-up.  What you will notice is fewer offerings and shorter sessions.  In the past, our sessions were divided into quarters of 8-weeks each, and we offered classes of several dance styles to choose from.  So, please bare with us as we test the waters first, with shorter sessions of about 3-4 weeks and offerings of the most popular and sought-after classes.  What has and will remain the same is the quality of instruction and the fun and enjoyment of learning the Polynesian dance arts.
