E KO MO MAI!! WELCOME!! Aloha Hula DC,a new division of Aloha Hula NYC, is a professional dance company specializing in Polynesian dances. We provide lu'au entertainment for all your occasions. Along with our lovely hand-crafted costumes, costume changes during the show, audience participation, live or recorded music and several different dances, we guarantee that your guests will be on their feet dancing hula and shaking their hips to the beat of Tahitian drums. HAWAII: Hula is much more than just dance. Hula is the heartbeat of the Hawaiian people. It is an expression of history, religion and the human spirit. Hula tells a story about life in Hawaii through graceful hand movements. TAHITI: Wearing beautiful tall headdresses, grass skirts and hand tassels,the dancers perform the Otea, moving their hips to the fast, pulsating drum beats. ADDITIONAL ENTERTAINMENT: 1) FIRE KNIFE DANCER 2) HAWAIIAN MUSICIANS 3) NEW ZEALAND: Maori poi balls which are balls attached to long cords, are twirled and swung about the body to form patterns,in a lasso-like high-energy display. In some cases, flaming poi balls are used. Canoe dances are also performed to tell a story of the Maori people migrating by canoe from Polynesia to New Zealand. ********************************************************************* MORE ABOUT OUR PERFORMERS: NALU - has been seen on commercials such as, "Dove Body Wash" and "The Travel Channel" featured as a Polynesian dancer.

Anne was our performer and she was AMAZING. Very professional and talented. She had our guests participating with the Hawaiian dances. Everyone from all ages 4 to 90 years old had a great time. Thanks so much Anne for making my Mom's birthday the best ever! Highly recommended!!!

Graduation PartyReviewed on June 26, 2021From Falls Church, VA

As a Pacific Islander Polynesian, I have to praise the professionalism & AUTHENTICITY of this duo: Anne (Mati) & Heather at my daughter’s grad BBQ party in VA. I was worried that I would get a cheap knockoff of costumes &/or performances as my guests included islanders who know authenticity & fakes, BUT THIS WAS NOT the case. The performances & island wear were ON POINT! Anne is a local Hawaiian girl & Heather is married to a local Samoan who teach their children these Polynesian dances. I am so pleased I went with Anne’s group/business! Anne was flexible & so easy to work with. She brought her own sound system. She had plenty instruments to engage with my guests. ??
