Due to the current COVID-19 Pandemic all performances have been cancelled for the 2020 show season.  As much as we would love to share the beauty of the islands through public and private performances, we value the health and safety of our dancers, their families, and our community. 

As we stay committed to portraying Polynesian cultures respectfully and accurately; the usage of face masks, social distancing and other suggested guidelines which would allow us to perform would hinder the authentic Hokuleʻa experience.

While we are taking a break from the stage, our dancers are busy learning new material, diving deeper into the cultural knowledge, and perfecting their skills in this craft through online, Zoom classes. 

We are even still accepting new students. 

We wish every one of our fans, followers, and clients a healthy and safe 2020.  See you on stage next year!
