Jess came and taught the girls some hula and even the adults. She took pictures with kids and adults. Everyone at the party thought she was great and were very impressed. Very friendly too. I'm sure we will hire her again...
I helped to plan a surprise birthday for my Uncle and the theme was a Luau. My first thought, could we have a hula dancer come to teach the guests a Hawaiian traditional dance? Gigsalad made it extremely easy to put out a request for this very specific service. Jessica responded RIGHT AWAY! She assisted us with adding in a ukulele artist in addition to her traditional luau dancing, which she had never had a request for before. It was very easy to book through Jessica. She and the ukulele artist did an EXCEPTIONAL job on the day of the event. They arrived early to set up and the performance was everything we could have asked for and MORE! Jessica showed us traditional dances first and then taught us the dance moves to several songs. It was AMAZING! She even allowed for members of my family to try on the beautiful Hawaiian skirt that she wore for the performances. The ukulele artist was GREAT as well! She sung traditional songs while Jessica taught us the dances. She has a gorgeous singing voice! Jessica is extremely down to earth and I HIGHLY highly highly recommend her services!
Jessica was GREAT!
We all had a beautiful time.
I highly recommend her. Very nice job.
Thanks for everything
Jess joined us at my daughter Harlynn's 6th Birthday party. She was amazing and the girls loved her and still have not stopped talking about her. I would highly recommend her as entertainment for any time of party. Thanks again.
Jessica was perfect for our indoor wintertime luau. She engaged the children who were present and even got most of the adults up and dancing. Her dancing was spot on, she was friendly, and we will definitely have her again. Thank you!

What to Expect
Should expect both traditional hula which is slow and tells a story with the hands as well as traditional Tahitian/ Polynesian dance which is the fast hip work. I dance by myself and provide a good deal of audience participation and involvement.
I arrange the exact performance desired before arriving with the event coordinator or person throwing party. It is generally a 30 min show however I am flexible in the clients needs. I have over 13 years of hula dance experience and have performed at numerous personal luaus in backyards as well as provided entertainment to retirement communities and nursing homes. I average 10 shows per week and have a wide range of experience. I currently am working with an adult program to provide weekly hula dance lessons to their residents. I can provide a clip of a dance video if requested and can answer any questions necessary.
