Testimonials

I just wanted to send another message to express my gratitude for your work and performances during "Island Night" this year. It was another success and I am really excited about the continuation of this event for years to come. We could not do it without the skill and grace of you and all your dancers. Thanks again!
~ Lonny Flora, Ashland Parks and Recreation

Your dancers were beautiful and graceful – we were all very impressed and enjoyed the experience immensely. I will be making recommendations for your dancers whenever the opportunities arise.
~ Linda Teshima, VP-Administration, Kathrein Inc., Scala Division

I sincerely appreciated all your efforts this past summer at Pu’uhonua O Honaunau. Your kumu and dancers showed exemplary reverence to our Hawaiian culture and I applaud your performances. Mahalo nui loa to your kumu. ~ Kumu Kahikina

Words cannot express my thanks to you and your talented dancers for helping us with the lu’au again this year! The event would be nothing without the beauty and authenticity you and Ha'ena bring. The event raised more than $2,500 for our scholarship program, which will help a lot of kids this winter. Thank you again for the power and grace you brought to the event. ~ Ada Rivera, Mt. Ashland Give-A-Kid-A-Lift fundraiser organizer

Our staff was very impressed with your halau, and your group was a shining example of how all practitioners would be in a perfect world. ~ Rae Godden, Park Ranger, Interpretation Division, Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park

Thank you so much for presenting at this year’s service, your unique contribution is so valued. There were so many happy and inspired faces afterwards and such a solid good feeling in that room. Thank you for joining in this most important purpose to anchor appreciation and respect among the many diverse traditions. ~ Reverend Ruth Kirby, Rogue Valley Interfaith Ministries

You totally delivered beautiful, professional, heartfelt hula that was simply amazing for a group of local "amateurs"! Many people commented to me during and after the show how your halau is such an asset for the Rogue Valley. Keep up the good work! Mahalo nui loa. ~ John Williams, producer of An Evening with Hapa

Mahalo nui loa! We look forward to sharing hula and our aloha spirit at your event!
