Maui Ballet has closed permanently

During the height of the covid pandemic, the team at West Hawaii Dance Theatre & Academy saw a need in Upcountry Maui for classical ballet education. As other studios remained closed, we opened the doors to Maui Ballet as an outreach program of our Kona studio.


Now, two years later, we’ve made the difficult decision to close. Our last classes were held on Saturday, July 15, 2023. Thank you for continuing to attend until that time to support the efforts of our little studio, and especially our amazing instructor and assistant director, Marisa Montany. Marisa has an exciting new adventure ahead and we couldn't be happier for her!


If you had been using a class (punch) card to attend class, the expiration date for all cards with punches remaining was extended to July 15. (Normally cards expire 60-240 days after purchase.) If you have questions about your class card, please contact us.


Thank you for sharing your love of dance with us. We hope to see you again!


With gratitude,

Virginia Holte, artistic director

Marisa Montany, assistant director

Julie Leydelmeyer, operations manager
