An Internationally Certified   GYROTONIC® & GYROKINESIS® Specialized Master Trainer Ms. Holte received her training from GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® Founder  Juliu Horvath.

 She travels yearly to continue her studies with Juliu, to bring the lastest information  back for her students and collegues.

Virginia is thrilled to share her lifelong passion for movement . All Classes are taught with care and consideration to suit each individual’s needs.


A graduate of the Academy of the Washington Ballet, Washington D.C under the direction of the  Mary Day, Ms Holte enjoyed professional career in Classical Ballet that spans over three decades.

As a professional dancer, Ms. Holte performed extensively with major dance companies, including the Washington Ballet, North Carolina Dance Theatre, Chicago Ballet and Indianapolis Ballet Theatre, touring both nationally and internationally. She was often invited to perform as a Guest Artist, with the New Jersey Ballet, Hawaii Youth Symphony, Indiana Ballet Theatre N.W. and the Ballet Gala Internationale.

 As an instructor, she received certification in both the Ceccheti and Vaganova methods of Classical Ballet, and is experienced in the R.A.D Method.  A teaching Certificate from the National Ballet of Canada and instructing students in the Hawaiian Islands  for over 30 years inspired Ms. Holte to create her own ballet syllabus,which combines the best of all three methodologies and incorporates injury prevention for young dancers.

Ms. Holte has been educating  Hawaii's community in dance  since 1986 with daily classes, outreach school presentations,and historical theatrical performances. Audiences in Hawaii have been privy to viewing such full length productions as The Nutcracker, Don Quixote, Sleeping Beauty, Sylvia, Swan Lake, and Gaite Parisienne to name a few.

The addition of the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® brings a full complement of movement modalities and injury prevention to the  Hawaii Community.
