About N2 Dance

N2 Dance (pronounced "in to dance") is a performing arts school specializing in Hip-Hop, Jazz, and Voice. N2 is also an abbreviation for the performance compound No-Limits and Na'au (heart and soul). N2 Dance was started in Honolulu August 2001 by Maika and Angela Woods, Husband and Wife dancers, choreographers and Teachers. After moving to the Big Island in 2005, for 6 years N2 Dance was based at a Hawaiian Immersion School in Kea'au. N2 Dance classes are now located at the YWCA of Hawai'i Island. No YWCA membership is required for classes.

N2 Dance Mission Statement

N2 Dance will maintain high moral values in music, choreography, and costumes while providing high quality instruction in a fun atmosphere. We commit to perform with our Na'au (heart and soul), and to put No-limits on what we or our students can accomplish as we are continually reaching for perfection.
