About
ALOHA e Ia Orana! Let's Hula! Award winning Nalani will get your Ho'olaule'a (party) started of on the right track. Nalani is a professional Polynesian Dance Performer, specializing in Weddings and Birthday parties for keiki/children and adults, alike. Authentic, professional and friendly entertainment is what sets her apart. Her set may include dances performed with Uli Uli (traditional hand-made gourds, decorated with bright yellow and red feathers) and Pu'ili (split bamboo sticks). Hula, Tahitian, and Maori styles. Nalani also brings the excitement to the luau, with her unique female fire show.

If you are looking for a duet, Nalani and her partner Leilani can customize a show to fit your needs. If you are having a smaller gathering, one dancer is usually a perfect fit.

Hula dancers add a warm and welcoming touch for Weddings. Whether you're getting married outdoors on the beach, or just having an indoor celebration, your guests will enjoy our performance. It's a great way of getting the party started after dinner is served. It's always a family friendly performance.

Apart from Hula, Nalani also performs Tahitian and Maori. Tahitian is mostly drum beats and the costumes differ from Hula, usually Hand-crafted Headdresses and Tassels are worn on the skirts. Usually Hula and Tahitian dances are incorporated in her show.

Looking for an Aloha Lei Greeting in addition to the performance. Nalani can arrange for two beautiful and friendly Aloha Wahines (ladies) to greet your guests, in a traditional Hawaiian way. If you wish for only the Lei Greeting without a performance for your event, that is also possible, just inquire and it can be arranged.

Aloha and mahalo nui loa for visiting. Looking forward to bringing smiles on many faces.

Fun fact:
The word tattoo originated in Tahiti. The legend of Tohu, the god of tattoo, describes painting all the oceans' fish in beautiful colors and patterns. In Polynesian culture, tattoos have long been considered signs of beauty, and in earlier times were ceremoniously applied when reaching adolescence.

Nalani was amazing! All of our guests enjoyed her show and loved participating. She taught us some traditional dances and got the whole crowd to do the limbo. She brought a speaker for her music and brought our party another level. All our guests loved it. I highly recommend having her at your party!

Nalani was amazing, very entertiaing and her outfits were stunning! I had thrown a birthday party for my teenage daughters. She had all our guests up and dancing with her (which if you have teenagers know that ia a difficult task now adays!). I highly recommend anyone having a luau theme event to make sure to include Nalani as part of your entertainment.

Nalani was wonderful! She was extremely accommodating when changed the date of the party due to the weather. I highly recommend hiring Nalani for your next event! She's professional, very engaging with your guests and everyone really enjoyed her performance. I still have many of my guest talk about her and its been a few weeks since our party.

We were completely delighted with Nalani's performance at our anniversary party! We did a luau theme and her Hula/Polynesian dancing added such a special touch to our party. Nalani's outfits & her dancing were so lovely & she went out of her way to make sure that the show was interactive. She was great with the kids & the adults at the party & taught many people "hula" dance moves. She was very professional & accommodating & several of my guests commented to me how nice they thought she was. I really could not have wanted a better experience & I understand why she is so in demand. I highly recommend Nalani to anyone who wants their party to be extra special!
