Aloha! I'm a hula and Tahitian dancer trained in Hawaii and I specialize in making your resident gatherings, employee appreciation events, charity events, educational programs, birthday parties, and anniversary parties extra special with the spirit of aloha (love) and ohana (family). I can design a program of dance performances, dance lessons, interactive games, and cultural lessons specifically for you and guests of your luau themed event. Princess parties, mermaid parties, and wildlife parties are also available. Everything I do is for the purpose of sharing an appreciation of the natural world from the oceans to the land to the wildlife.
I had a last minute request and her communication and attention to detail was great. My husband was thrilled and loved her performance.Mahalo!
Dawn did an amazing job. she interacted with our students and they absolutely loved learning the hula. We would definitely book her again in the future.
The Georgia International Horse Park hired Dawn for the Conyers Cherry Blossom Festival, an annual cultural festival that touts friendship between all countries. We never had Tahitian representation before, and Dawn did not disappoint! She was communicative prior to the date, punctual, full of energy, and a real pro on the stage. She brought an assistant and two young dancers to give our festival audience a variety traditional dances as well as instruction, and had several beautiful costume changes. It was one of the most engaging acts we had, with delightful storytelling dance movements that really captured the essence of its origin. It was a cold day at outdoor event (unfortunate since the day prior at the event was in the 70s), and Dawn and her dance companions braved the chilly temperatures without complaint. Dawn was a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to bring her back at a future date. A tremendous thank you for the performance, and for your above board congenial attitude, Dawn!!
Dawn performed a half hour show for our neighborhood diners group. We had a luau theme dinner, and she performed several numbers, created the guest with leis, posed for photos and even taught a short hula class for our guest which was really fun and the guest really enjoyed it. Dawn also brought a fire act who twirled fire sticks and balls and ate fire while she danced, which was really a beautiful sight. We really enjoyed working with Dawn planning the event and she is very professional and a joy to work with. We will be booking her again later this summer for another event.
Dawn was very entertaining and we loved it. She danced elegantly. Would recommend her to anyone.
Dawn was very nice and got there on time. She knew how to get my sisters interested and they were very excited to learn to hula! She is very talented and easy to work with! I am so grateful that she came all the way from Atlanta to come to my event in Birmingham, AL. If I have another event, I know who I am going to book!!
I hired Dawn for my wife’s 50th birthday, with a Hawaii-50 theme. She was very engaging with our guests and reasonably priced.... and her show was ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!! I highly recommend!
Dawn was so professional and entertaining st my daughter’s sixth birthday luau. She had awesome costumes and brought her own music system that worked well in our house. She interacted well with the kids and took lots of photo with us. The kids loved learning two different hula dances. My daughter was beaming! She provided the limbo for us to do while she changed clothes between dances, and it was a huge hit with the kids! Thank you so much, Dawn! We will never forget this super fun birthday party! 🌺
Dawn was amazing. Loved her performance and she entertained the kids for almost 2 hours. She was very skilled and several people at the party were in awe. Absolutely loved it. Would highly recommend her.
Thanks Dawn for making my daughter's birthday extra special
Dawn presented a wonderful performance for our sorority gathering. She was very warm, professional, and informative. She definitely provided us with a fun afternoon.
Dawn showed up on time for my daughters birthday party. She brought an amazing demeanor & joy to the party & performed beautifully. I would recommend her talents for any event.
Dawn arrived early and was the most professional and personal party entertainer I have had the pleasure of working with. She arrived early, brought her own music and speaker, kept on schedule and easily engaged audience participation. Having lived on Oahu for 20 years, I can attest her Hawaiian Hula knowledge and dance authenticity was on target - I cannot say enough positive comments; Hire Dawn for your next hula party! EVERYONE enjoyed it - both men and women followed Dawn's direction in delight.
Dawn really catered to the audience and performed a hula lesson that was easy and fun! Would book again!!
What a phenomenal evening. To quote you..."Mahalo E Ke Alua No Keia La"
THANKS to you and Jimmy for making a special evening EXTRA SPECIAL.
Looking forward to doing it again.

We thoroughly enjoyed Dawn's hula and Polynesian dance presentation. She was very well received by the residents and their families. She explained the cultural history of the cultural dances and her unique difference in her costumes. She engaged the participants by teaching a small group of them a hula dance, introduced herself to each one of the residents, posed for photos, and remained afterwards to answer questions. Her interaction with all the participants was very tender with this senior adult group.
Dawn was fantastic! The girls all
Loved her and had so much fun learning the dances. She stayed longer then we had set up and really wanted to make sure the girls were happy. I would def recommend her for a kids birthday party!
The kids as well as the parents enjoyed Dawn's performance at my daughter's 5th Birthday Party. The kids really thought that she was Princess Moana. We will definitely book Dawn again in the near future.
Dawn performed at my wife's birthday luau on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in Marietta. Our communication before the party was excellent and I had a chance to explain about the guests and what we were thinking about. She arrived on time and performed in two authentic outfits, each time everyone took photos with her. She taught the kids a special hula dance that they loved, then we all did the limbo! Everyone commented on how cool it was and asked me how I found her. I would highly recommend Dawn to anyone looking to add something to their party that the guests will never forget. Thanks Dawn!
Dawn was fantastic! The audience loved her and she actually had some volunteers join her in a hula lesson.
I would highly recommend her for your next event!
Mahealani is a beautiful dancer. Her sparkle and arm was the highlight of our party. She graciously fit our party in after she had several parties before us. She is so graceful and mesmerizing to watch. What we really enjoyed with her being so knowledgeable about her craft and sharing with us the type of dance she was going to perform. Dawn was even very patient with us as she taught us a hula dance. Trust me, it is not as easy as it looks. We had a great time, will definitely book her again and highly recommend her for your next event.
Her costumes were exquisite.
I contacted Dawn last minute, but she was able to work our party into her schedule anyway! All of the guests enjoyed her performance and the hula hoop and limbo contests were a hit!
Dawn was very entertaining and engaging. I will definitely use her again and will recommend her to anyone to use!!!!!
I recently booked Dawn to surprise my 77 year old mom for her birthday. Dawn went to the Senior center and performed for the entire group of senior adults while making my mom feel special on her special day.
Dawn is awesome! I highly recommend her! I loved connecting with her sweet spirit during the booking process.
ANY occasion you need to give her a call. You will be so happy you did!
Unfortunately, I was unable to attend, but my twin granddaughters says I am the best for the booking. They called several times to thank me. They said they had the best time and the girl attendees were elated(boys weren't interested). The adults were so amazed, which gave me cool grandma points. My daughter in law said she would book you for her adult events. So, on a scale of 1 - 10, you were an 11.
She showed up on time, great performances and costumes authentic. Everyone enjoyed it and also got out there dancing with her.
Dawn came all the way to Auburn, AL from Atlanta to perform for my summer day camp. The kids enjoyed her two Hula performances and learning a dance routine as well. She was great about communication and even showed up early. Would highly recommend Dawn!
Dawn went far beyond the call of duty. She did everything she said she would do. She arrived on time and was fun and engaging with the crowd. Everyone loved their performance and how they trained us to hula dance. From the beginning to the end, she kept it exciting and I would not hesitate to call on her again. She was very professional and has a great personality. The people are still talking about them.
Dawn did a fabulous job! I highly recommend her.
I live in another town and was unable to be with my son on his birthday. I wanted to do something very special for him, so I found Dawn online and got her to go to his 24th birthday party. He had some of his fraternity brothers and their dates, she was A hit! She gave him some hula lessons. He is now ready for a Hawaii trip! She was very efficient and very professional I'm so glad I found her to make his day very special. I would highly recommend her . Thank you very much Dawn
Dawn performed for families at Amy's Place and not only was her dancing/costuming "over the top", so was her engagement with our audience. Her teaching us about the costumes, dances, and the meanings of both was outstanding. Dawn takes her "business" very seriously and her respect for the Polynesian/Hawaiian culture just radiates with every performance.
Entertaining and lots of engaging fun. Dawn provides easy instructions for participation. Limbo and hula hoops with Hawaiian music quickly engaged everyone to learn a Hawaiian dance. Amazing to see everyone having a great time.
Dawn was amazing at my daughters party! We had a lot of fun watching her perform! She was great with the kids and took the time to take pictures with all of the guests! She was wonderful entertainment and I would recommend her to anyone! Thanks Dawn!
Dawn was super nice and a great performer. Would book again
Dawn was on time, had beautiful costumes and performed flawlessly. Everyone, young an seniors, who attended the birthday party were very complimentary of her and her performance. She made our party so much fun. She was also very gracious in allowing photos to be taken with her.
