Singer/Songwriter Izik grew up in Hawaii. His interest in music was nurtured and cultivated at a very young age when his grandmother insisted on him learning how to play an instrument. He learned the guitar and began songwriting during his freshman year of high school. In 2012, Izik was asked to perform at a fundraiser for The Life Foundation at Hula’s Bar and Lei Stand in Waikiki, which led to a weekly gig for the next year and more shows. Currently Izik is working on his EP but you can catch him on Wednesdays at Hula’s Bar and Lei Stand in Waikiki and monthly at Monkeypod Ko ‘Olina where he performs with G.J., Cole Strona, Christian Bautista, Aaron Yabes and Melanie Kaneaiakala.

They meet the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month at Alive Ballet Center to form an integrated community of movers that explore weight, contact, and communication in relation to each other and our environment.  Each meeting consists of warming up with solo work and structured group work, a review of techniques and skills that we select and explore together, and ends with a dance “jam”.
