Nalani

Why book Nalani?

Nalani is an award winning, highly sought after professional Hawaiian Hula Performer, specializing in birthday parties for children and adults, alike. 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). I perform and give basic Hula lessons as part of the package.

If you are looking for a duet, Nalani and her partner 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.

Livening up a party

Having Nalani entertain at our backyard pig roast not only provided an enjoyable cultural experience but also got people who didn't know each other to interact in such a fun way. Both chidren and adults participated and she was great at coaxing some reluctant partygoers to get up and be part of the fun. She made herself available for photos after her act, and the liveliest part of the party was doing the limbo. I am so happy we had her come!

A fabulous addition to our daughter's first birthday luau!

Nalani was such a treat for our guests. She danced beautifully and interacted well with the children and adults alike. Our guests were so excited to be able to pose for photos with Nalani. She was very gracious and entertaining.

Birthday Luau for Kids

Nalani and her dancing partner Leilani performed at our daughter's 7th birthday party. Both ladies were very professional and worked really well with the kids. All of the kids, and many of the adults, enjoyed the limbo contest after the performances. Overall, we were really pleased with the event and working with Nalani and Leilani. It was great to speak in detail about the logistics of the day with Nalani in advance of the party and I think that really helped to make everything work out well. Should the occasion arise again in the future, we would not hesitate to hire Nalani and Leilani again.

Perfect for our Luau

We hired Nalani for my mother-in-law's Hawaiian Luau 70th Birthday Party! She was perfect and got the party off to the right start! She arrived promptly and was very authentic looking. We enjoyed dancing the hula with her and she got everyone up to join in the fun! I would definitely recommend Nalani and would hire her again if the need arrises!

A great addition to my daughter's Luau birthday party!

I hired Nalani for my daughter's birthday party, and we really enjoyed the performance! When booking Nalani, she was very accommodating with dates & times & also agreed to a rain date, which was great. She followed up very quickly with a contract via e-mail & answered my questions quickly via e-mail too. She showed up early for the performance. She didn't even need to plug in her speaker, and all we had to do was enjoy the show. I particularly liked the Polynesian dancing. The performance appealed to all ages at our party, and we all loved the adult male audience participation! Nalani & her partner ran a limbo contest after her performance, and that went well. I was surprised to see the adults actually participated in the contest. I would definitely recommend her. Thanks Nalani!

A Birthday Luau.

My mom celebrated her 88 th birthday and I wanted this event a special one. My mom's desire was to vacation in Hawaii, but never happened. I thought that bringing a little bit of the Hawaiian entertainment into my mother's home would please her. The home was transformed with luau decoration and was quite beautiful. We had a total of 25 close friends and family attend this special moment.
When I spoke to Nalani for arrangements,I knew she was special. When the party started, she looked beautiful, was all smiles, engaged the audiance, made us laugh,we took plenty of photos and she brought a glow to my mom's face. Wow what a night. Hire Nalani, you won't regret it!
