I spent several years traveling to Egypt, Morocco, Turkey and Hong Kong as a Polynesian Dancer and Choreographer. I represented several businesses in Hawai'i and mainly for the Hawai'i Visitors Bureau. When I was not traveling, Waikiki was my showroom. For many years I danced at the Moana Surfrider Hotel, Hilton Hawaiian Village, Sheraton Princess Kaiulani Hotel, and the Halekulani Hotel where I sometimes worked as a Hula soloist at House without a Key.

Currently I offer private Hula lessons as well.  Beginner's group sessions are being offered in the Whangarei (New Zealand) area.  If you are interested please contact me via the Contact page for more information. I have taught Polynesian dancing to the students at Totara Grove School in Tikipunga for several years.


Hawaiian Hula Lessons

Performing in Hong Kong with the Brothers Cazimero and former Miss Hawaiis.




Cost $70 for the 6-week sessions

Classes will be in Whangarei, NZ

Goals for participating students:  At the end of the six sessions, the ladies will have a better understanding of the Art of Hula and be able to perform.  They will learn the basic Hawaiian Hula steps then incorporating that into a hula or two depending on the skill level or dance experience of those in the class.  It will be a fun class and Hula dancing is certainly good for the heart, body and soul.  Class is open to ladies starting from age 15.
