Face Painting by Alana Dill

Alana Dill Face Painting in Alameda

A lifelong artist, Alana began a serious study of face painting around 2006. With a background in fine art, graphic art, and animation, Alana loves taking face painting far beyond the realm of cute little hearts and balloons on the cheek.

Alana focuses primarily on face painting, body art, and other visual arts. She can lead sing-a-longs, act as a character, make up stories on the spot, and participate in improvisational theater.

Alana can also do custom designs for special occasions.

Tutu School

Tutu School Alameda ballet for kids

Boutique-style ballet schools that cater specifically to children 18 months to 8 years-old. Located inside Park Street Plaza.

Our mission is simple: We believe that twirling should be a fundamental part of any childhood. Exposing children at the earliest possible age to creativity, movement, and classical music will serve them well in whatever they choose to do with their lives. Dancing like swans and Sugar Plum Fairies not only exercises little bodies but also nurtures big imaginations.


Twirl Alameda

Twirl seeks to create a community hub where groups not only play, create, and explore but share experiences and build friendships!

Children are immersed in possibilities for exploration in our open studio design lab. Younger children can take a ride on the tike track, climb through the tree house or have a tea party at the patisserie. Come build a fort in the construction zone, swing in the magical village or snuggle up and read in the book nook. Twirl Play Leaders come out periodically to lead “Twirl Time” with singing and dancing.

Rotating play exhibits are featured each quarter. Twirl will also offer classes, seasonal camps and kids night out every Friday.
