24/7 Danceforce was founded in 1991 by Marcelo Pacleb. It started in a small, two-window room in the Mapunapuna area. Back then, only two dance classes were offered weekly.
24/7 Danceforce is now a non-profit organization, located in Kaneohe, Hawaii, with students and dancers representing communities across the entire State. 24/7 Danceforce is dedicated to offering a high quality dance education program in a supportive and nurturing environment.
Our approach to dance education develops attributes that will be of value to all students throughout their lifetime such as discipline, self-respect, self-confidence, creativity, self-expression and imagination. Our take on dance education also instills appreciation for music, dance, and other art forms.
We provide opportunities for our dancers to perform out in the community and in professionally produced concerts during the year. They also have an opportunity to participate in dance workshops and competitions, both locally and nationally – World of Dance, JUMP!, Urban Jamm, Tremaine’s, to name a few – and have consistently earned top awards.
Many of our students have gone on to perform professionally with well-known artists such as Lady Gaga, Janet Jackson, J Lo, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, the Pussycat Dolls and on Broadway with “Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, The King and I, Aladdin, Miss Saigon, and Wicked.
