Several years ago, dance studio director Emily Hackworth amazingly conquered a serious health challenge. This success -- along with the encouragement of her family and friends – inspired her to return to dancing as a dance studio owner and instructor.


She took the reins of Renee Oshiro’s dance studio (formerly the X-Factor Dance Studio) and re-named it XStatic because of the overwhelming happiness and joyful excitement she felt both personally for the many students who shared her love of dance. 


XStatic Dance Studio immediately became a nurturing home for dancers from children to adults and from beginner to advanced levels. 


The small studio atmosphere and supportive environment enables all dancers to takeaway technique, discipline, confidence, coordination, physical/emotional well-being, and friendship.


Parents of younger dancers love being able to watch their child progress during classes in the open-spaced environment. 


There’s also the excitement and sense of accomplishment at end-of-semester performances at Ala Moana Shopping Center and other venues. Students in each class showcase jazz and hip hop performances.


All classes are held on Saturdays.


X-Static is a dance studio that focuses on creating a family-friendly professional environment where everyone is welcome. We’d love for you to join us!
