The Chinen/Hruby Family

Hi!  We are the Chinen/Hruby Family-Shellanie (Robles), Jesse, Casimira (15), Chariya (13), Michael, and Emelda Hruby (Grandparents).

Shellanie, Casimira and Chariya’s Mom is a Billing Manager at Five Star Transportation.  Jesse, Father is a Warehouse Manager at Five Star Transportation.  Casimira is a Sophomore at Mililani High School, and was crowned Susan Page Miss Teen Hawaii 2020 Queen in January 2020.  Chariya is in 8th grade at Mililani Middle School.  They also have two younger siblings, Michael (22 months), and Cindy Rain (9 months).  Michael, Grandfather is the President/Owner of Five Star Transportation, and Emelda, Grandmother works part-time at Five Star Transportation in Human Resource and some legal.

Casimira and Chariya’s dance journey at Pas De Deaux Hawaii began on or about March 2014, when they signed up with PDD.  Casimira enrolled in hip hop, and Chariya initially enrolled only in ballet.  Over the years, Chariya became interested in dancing in 3 other genres, which included jazz, contemporary, and hip hop.  Chariya received back to back Dancer of the Year in 2017, 2018, and 2019.  Both girls had, and still have the passion for dancing.  They are now in their 5th year dancing with PDD Dance Company.  Dancing for PDD have definitely taught both girls discipline and professionalism, and for that we are very thankful. We are very proud of both girls and all of their accomplishments.

We would like to thank the Owners Wendy and Jeremy Gilbert for all of the dance opportunities and support over the years, and a big thank you to all the talented, nurturing, and hard working dance instructors.  We would also like to recognize and thank all the administrative and office staff for doing such a great job in all that they do.  It has been great meeting and knowing PDD Families over the years.  Pas De Deaux Hawaii is a great, professional dance studio.

Thank you Pas De Deaux Hawaii for recognizing our family for January 2022 Family of the Month!
