Overall I was pleased with the performance however I was told there would be 4 dancers. Based on the picture provided I expected 4 adult women
Instead 6 children performed. They did well and the narrator was very good explaining the dances and did offer lessons at the end. But I felt like I was at my daughters dance recital. They need to be more up front about the dancers coming
Its a very small group and would like to see more traditional dances and better outfits wouldn't be bad either. I attended your recital last year. I'm from the mainland and this group could use more improvement and more drummers. Plus fire dancers would be great! :)
Response from A Hui Hula 'O Punahele:
Our group is not small, we have a cast of 45 dancers. Perhaps it was a performance where the client asked for less. Our halau is taught in traditional Polynesian styles and modern styles. Infact our Kumu Hula is one of the most traditional n the Hula community. We have 6 drummers, why would anyone need more? I am sorry you felt we were not up to your standards, but I will say our halau works to be the best. "Fire Dancers"? Siva Afi, or Fire Knife Dancers are available, but it requires permits from the local fire marshall. Kala mai, but where did you see this performance your are referencing? I hope you will follow up with me so that we may address those things you mentioned. I don't recognize your name, were you the guest or my client?
