Give your child a delightful chance to dance, have fun and connect with other kids in this series. Siblings often love taking the series together!
Shai’s safe and playful environment provides an opportunity for keiki to explore their deep authentic self and develop confidence to express themselves their own special way.
This series promotes positive growth by focusing on emotions, connections, friendships, movement and music. We play in groups as well as individually exploring body movements, using music, interactive games and stories to develop self expression, self confidence and healthy balance between hearing and being heard.
Meanwhile, you can take a same-time adult Aerial Yoga class for a great transition between your daytime and evening duties while the kids are having a blast and blowing off steam! Or use the time to shop at Whole Foods across the street.
And schedule another time for yourself to deeply relax in a Thai Yoga Massage session with Shai.
See you soon!

Keiki need an accompanying adult
Island Mama Yvonne shares her IMY Kidsjam of world culture through music-dance-art-crafts. This is a celebration of peace and harmony in all the colors of the rainbow. The fun-filled event features dancers and musicians of different cultures, allowing the audience to participate artistically as well. Children will leave with a piece of self-created art in their hands.
IMY, also known as Island Mama Yvonne, is an infectiously enthusiastic emcee and events coordinator extraordinaire. Dividing her time between two shores – Hong Kong and Hawaii – Yvonne’s mission is to share her Aloha Spirit with everyone she meets, from the young to the young at heart. Island Mama Yvonne collaborates with her 10 year old daughter Kalani on all her children’s events.
A dancer and artist herself, Yvonne has been working with international musicians and artists of renown since 2000 to create world cultural events and concerts. Her “POPO Song & Dance” with 50 Hong Kong artists/crew was recorded at the world-renowned Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios (England). “Havana Mania Carnival” shared Latin music and dance with Vocal Sampling, the Latin Grammy-nominated acapella group from Cuba. Yvonne’s “Hawaiian Family Festival” starred the Na Hoku Hano Hano Award-winning artists Nohelani Cypriano and Nathan Aweau. In 2014 Yvonne brought Hawaiian ukulele virtuoso Taimane to Hong Kong for her debut concert. Most recently, IMY organized Viu TV’s cross-cultural music travel documentary featuring the beloved musicians Endy Chow from Hong Kong and Taimane at the historic Governor’s Mansion in Honolulu.
“You can take the girl out of the island but never the island out of the girl.” IslandMama Yvonne continues to spread her ALOHA Spirit whether on her world travels or at her current home base in Hong Kong.

Now you can peel your kids’ eyes away from that TV screen, video game or cel phone and enroll them in something fun and healthy: by joining the circus for a day! Led by a fine host of teachers with diverse backgrounds and rich offerings, Still & Moving Center’s Circus Day Camp will engage your child and give them an experience they will never forget.
The Circus skills we will cover include archery, aerial hammock, Lyra (aerial hoop), pantomime, hoop dance, tumbling and juggling, which all engage the child’s body and mind, leading to increased concentration and longer attention spans. Led by Phil Doerr, founder of Archery for All, Circus Camp is designed to build confidence, teach responsibility, sharpens focus and boosts brainpower. He believes that “nothing clears the mind better than shooting a bow.”
The circus is also a great training ground for children to learn responsible social practices, like sharing, compassion and awareness of self and others. Heather Booth, our resident aerial arts teacher, spent years traveling (in such places as Israel, Palestine and Thailand) teaching social circus, which teaches trust and encourages people to find peace. Ki Wagar is a magical teacher of aerial arts, tumbling, hooping and yoga to children. She creates a calm and supportive atmosphere for children to connect with their bodies and grow physically, mentally and emotionally. With a little luck, we may have a surprise visit from Giggles the Clown!
Healthy snacks and vegetarian lunch provided; drop-off at 9am and pick-up at 4:30pm.
Treat your children to a day at the circus where they get to be the stars!
