Project Description

Our Mission

At Luebirta & Kaleonani Inc we strive to educate teen dancers to leverage their talents in dance to succeed artistically, academically and professionally, as well as guide busy women to reduce the negative effects of stress on their health through fitness, meditation and mindfulness. And we are raising funds to expand our reach to continue to empower our clients to create their best possible life through dance and wellness. 

 

The Problems

~Many teen dancers missed the chance to leverage their talents in dance to get into college, receive scholarships, travel the world and create the life they want because the information is not readily available to ALL teen dancers. 

~ A lot of women who are busy, stressed and/or feeling mediocre in their body assume this is normal, don't know how to fix it, or can’t find something easy on the joints but effective in its delivery and results.

 

How We Solve Them

~A College Prep Webinar of short videos that are informative on how to find a program that's right for you, how to apply, and incentives about some notable programs.

~Access a Database filled with over 100 colleges in the US offering dance programs, separated by regions, states, and 2 year versus 4 year, scholarships and scholarships programs with eligibility requirements and links to apply. 

~A Career Prep Workshops with a panel of speakers from all areas of the dance industry to give guidance, resources, encouragement and to pass along the knowledge of how to use dance to succeed artistically, academically, and professionally in life no matter what their career goals are. 

~A library of on-demand workouts and mediations that are quick, easy to do at home, low to no impact, joint friendly and effective.

~An 8 week program of fitness, mindfulness, meditation, nutritional guidance and water intake to help those who need a complete mental and physical reset to create a lifestyle that serves their body, mind and spirit. 

 

The above are available on our website. But having all of that information available in app form allows for efficiency and streamlining for a teen dancer to quickly search for the perfect program and a overwhelmed woman to watch a quick 2 minute meditation video to decompress from her busy day. 

 

Why We Need Your Help

We are building an app to expand our reach and serve our clients more efficiently! An app that allows high school dancers and their parents the ability to search for the right college program and scholarship for them with touch of a button.  An app that allows busy women on the go access to quick and effective stress alleviation fitness, meditations and mindfulness. And a Graphic Designer and Marketing Strategist to tie it all in with a plan to market to and engage with our ideal clients.  We are raising a total of $15,000! $10,000 for app development and the remainder to stretch between hiring a graphic designer, a marketing strategist and the execution of their plan! Help us get the word out about the work that we do at Luebirta & Kaleonani Inc!

Why we do it (A note from the Founder, Keisa Parrish)  

I’m a classically trained professional dancer with a BFA in dance from Fordham University, a Wellness and Dance educator, a former Radio City Rockette and a single mother. I have been all of our clients. I was the teen dancer who had no idea how to leverage my talents to help pay for college, or choose a different school that better suited my choices and goals for my life or to skip college altogether and begin working professionally. So I became the college student who graduated $50,000 in debt with a BFA in Dance and no support or guidance from my college on how to get out in the real world, make a living and chase my dreams. And as a single mother, living in a fast paced city, I needed many jobs to support me and my child while I still pursued my dreams. So I know what it's like to be busy, stressed, and so inundated with work obligations, home responsibilities and social invitations that you do not realize how much stress is negatively affecting your health. But now through my 30 years of being a dancer, 25 years of teaching dance, 17 years of judging dance competitions and 13 years of being a health and wellness teacher, I have learned the solutions and how to effectively relay them to others. 

Over the years of working in the dance industry, talking, teaching and networking with other dancers that chose or defaulted into different paths I’ve concluded and have witnessed that there are all sorts of ways to use dance to get the life you want. From working professionally right out of high school to attending a college dance program that can support the many career paths a dancer could take both on and off stage. I was the director of a scholarship program and learned about the many opportunities for scholarships for high school dancers, even if they choose not to major in dance. And because I’ve taught at and managed dance studios, well known performing arts institutions, dance conventions as well as judged dance competitions, I’ve seen the large number of dancers; recreational, competitive and pre-professional that don’t know the options they have to leverage their talents to create their best possible life. And through my studies of being a yoga, pilates, wellness and mindfulness teacher who educates people on ways to care for themselves, I know the signs that point to a diminishing health. So my knowledge of the benefits of wellness (fitness, mindfulness) spoken in a relatable way from my own real world experiences helps me to communicate clearly and effectively with our clients. I know it. I’ve been it. I’ve studied it. I’ve changed it. And I’ve seen the results. And I’m on a mission to help others.”
