The West Hawai’i Dance Theatre & Company will present the well-loved fairy tale “Snow White” at the Kahilu Theatre on Monday, May 30.

With a 4 p.m. start time, audience members will enjoy the classic elements of the fairy tale with over 50 West Hawai’i Dance Academy students and guest dancers from the Maui Academy of Performing Arts.

The show is choreographed by West Hawai’i Dance Theatre & Academy’s Founder and Artistic Director, Virginia Holte, Assistant Director Midori Satoh, and Instructors Jenna Ojeda, Megan Joy Chapman, and Juanita Finkenberg.
