Birthday Party (Kids)Reviewed on August 29, 2022From Katonah, NY

Our performer was wonderful but somehow had the wrong time so the performance was an hour late. We were fairly flexible and could accommodate but wondering where the entertainer was had added to the stress of throwing a party.

EventReviewed on August 11, 2022From Severn, MD

I cannot recommend Aloha Hula highly enough. First, the price was much lower than the competition (less than half the price). Second, they were extremely professional and all coordination was done directly with our hula dance instructor. Third, the event was completely catered to the crowd (a group of 75 church ladies). Lastly, Anne, the dance instructor/performer was absolutely incredible. She knew just how to get everyone smiling and dancing. She helped make our event the best night ever and the hula dance instruction will be the topic of conversation for weeks to come! Look no further!
