November 2016 - The Yashiki Family

Aloha! We are The Yashiki's, Rylan, Jessica, Jeslyn (7) and Kirah (2), and we are so honored to be chosen as Pas De Deux Hawaii's November Family of the Month. Rylan is a Sales Coordinator for Oceanic Time Warner Cable and a Worship Leader for Grace Bible Church Pearlside. Jessica is a Medial Biller for Jennifer Frank, MD, an Executive Consultant for Rodan + Fields and in June she happily joined the PDD Admin Staff. Jeslyn is a 2nd grader at Gus Webling Elementary School and Kirah is in the Level 6 Class at Gymboree Play & Learn at Pearlridge.

In 2011 at the young age of 2.5, Jeslyn started dancing Tap and Ballet. The dancing bug hit her hard and she wanted more. In 2013 she joined Pas De Deux Hawaii taking Creative Movement and Hip Hop for Tots. Today Jeslyn's passion for dance is even bigger and we're at the studio 5 days a week. She's currently enrolled in Ballet, Jazz, Hula, Hip Hop and just this September she was proud to be in her Musical Theatre debut as one of Ursula's tentacles in The Little Mermaid Jr. Kirah is excited and ready to start her dancing career in March when she finally turns 3.

Pas De Deux Hawaii is something spectacular and we're all honored to be a part of it. It's a safe place for children to express themselves in a nurturing and accepting environment. Owners Wendy and Jeremy Gilbert are nothing short of phenomenal. Their talent, passion and drive are obvious and it shines in everything they do for the studio. Pas De Deux Hawaii is a grand special place for kids (and adults) to bond and fall in love with each other through the arts. This is especially moving in a world where we need more love going around.
