Ruhala Holistic Arts Center offers both group classes and private instruction and guided one-on-one sessions for all ages. Ruhala also offers advanced Broadway Musical Theatre & Acting Ensembles that focus on training and public performances. Performing arts dance classes include Ballet, Tap, Jazz, & Modern specializing in Broadway styles. Singing classes are offered in Glee Broadway music and Private Lessons for singers of all styles. Acting classes offered are Acting 101, Improv! and advanced acting technique classes. In the Healing Arts, Ruhala offers Reiki energy sessions, Brain/Body Balance sessions, Mental Toughness sessions, and one-on one intuitively guided sessions for individual empowerment.
All of our work is individual centered, i.e., we take the individual, whether child, teen, or adult, from where they are at, and assist their development. Our focus is holistic, always looking at the whole child or person and guiding individuals to reach their best. Healing and art go hand in hand as the Montefiore Medical Center states, “The healing arts are creative practices that promote healing, wellness, coping and personal change”. Ruhala aims to engage children and adults in creative processes that inspire and motivate health and wellness, be it in performing classes or therapeutic sessions.
Celina and Mark Ruhala have been co-creating these programs for over twenty years in New York, and more recently in East Lansing. Bringing Broadway experience along with personal growth development and education, Celina and Mark are ever passionate about their work and share great enthusiasm to the people they work with. With a reputation for excellence, they always are growing, expanding, and learning themselves, especially from their students and clients.

Celina & Mark Ruhala
Health and wellness go together.
Our philosophy is we have an innate biological instinct to be healthy and well. Nature protects its Life and living. It is built in - self-regulation, self-regeneration, robust immune responses, all edible food organic and nutritionally dense, community and the support thereof, interconnectedness, quantum entanglement of all, powerful individual will, stamina, and evolved intelligence, epigenetics to evolve more rapidly, and finally the obvious evidence that kindness, compassion, understanding, forgiveness, acceptance, and generosity of spirit and action, lead to a thriving human family.
We believe a person’s body is sacred and is owned by the individual.
We believe women have a natural right of sovereignty over their bodies, as do men. Parents have the sovereign right to raise their children and make decisions for them when necessary.
When you come to Ruhala we welcome you for your individual spirit and sense of cooperation in our shared work and studio relationship.
We respect individual choices, so if you wear a mask or not, we give you respect. If you choose to be vaccinated or not, we respect you. Our excitement in working with our students and families is all about our shared joy, our joy of working with your children and yourselves; it is so much bigger and deeper than individual health decisions. It is not enough to simply do business and make profits from our "customers"; it is the memories we create together making theatre and dance come to life. Our lives are rich with those memories.
Certain decisions of an individual are private, and not to be shared. As with family decisions, individual decisions are better made from one's own best self-interest, and no one can know that better than the family and its individual members.
We love health, love movement, love singing and dancing, love wellness, working out, eating organics and thereby supporting the Earth home, saying positive things, sharing stories, and discovering the optimal paths toward vibrant health and deeply quiet wellness.
We look forward to seeing you and working together soon.
Peace, Love & Miracles.

with Mark Ruhala
Owner and Artistic Director Mark Ruhala writes about many subjects from theatre to child development, to quantum physic and science to wasteful and inept government policies, and much more. Always presenting thought-provoking pieces that ask us to question. First and foremost, Mr. Ruhala believes everything must be questioned, even his teachings, as he suggests to his students. Mr. Ruhala earned his Master of Arts degree by synthesizing theatre with epigenetics, neurology, positive psychology based on Abraham Maslow's work, and quantum physics. Holism is his passion. Making connections to everything is his desire - to glimpse how interrelated all is in our reality. More than any philosophy to follow, Ruhala feels the most pragmatic and realistic base of living emerges from mystery. All is a mystery. The fundamental questions of life are a mystery. By staying in the mystery, remaining inclusive of all, asking questions, challenging current paradigms, and feeling the interconnectedness of Life brings compassion and intelligence.
