Who We Are

Kaleo Kids is a12-week program of high-energy, fun, and challenging performing arts classes. Each week, the kids break up into smaller groups based on their grade and are sent through rotations in music, dance, and drama. The rotations are taught by a trained music, dance, and drama teacher. And the program is led by a director.


A note from Renee (Kaleo Kids Program Director/Founder)

Challenging, rewarding, fun, and at times, down right hilarious! These are a few words that can describe my experience working with kids. I am excited to share with you our heart for using the arts as a way to pour into their precious souls and show them how they can be a message carrier of hope and love to their communities. When we treat kids with respect and believe they are capable of changing the world, we realize the stakes are high! 

Over the past 10+ years I’ve been directing Kaleo, I’ve seen thousands of kids step up on stage and and lead adults and other kids through songs, stories and personal testimonies that left us inspired, challenged and hopeful. There is nothing like watching a child step up to a mic and deliver a profound truth: that love will always win and tearing others with kindness, grace and generosity will be the hard work we can do to make the world a better place. As a child of God, each one of us is filled with unlimited potential to live our lives with purpose and fulfillment. Teaching kids at a young age to grasp this idea will ultimately set up these young people to be leaders, not later on in their lives, but right now. 

I hope this will be a helpful tool for you to understand the ins and outs of this program. As you will see, we value self-evaluation, critique, and growth because we know that providing an excellent experience for the children and their families is worth it! Please enjoy reading. When you’re finished, we’d love to know what you think. We know we’ll have done our job right, if after reading this, you wish you were a kid again so you could be IN the program!
