E KO MO MAI!! WELCOME!!
Aloha Hula DC,a new division of Aloha Hula NYC, is a professional dance company specializing in Polynesian dances. We provide lu'au entertainment for all your occasions.

Along with our lovely hand-crafted costumes, costume changes during the show, audience participation, live or recorded music and several different dances, we guarantee that your guests will be on their feet dancing hula and shaking their hips to the beat of Tahitian drums.

HAWAII: Hula is much more than just dance. Hula is the heartbeat of the Hawaiian people. It is an expression of history, religion and the human spirit. Hula tells a story about life in Hawaii through graceful hand movements.

TAHITI: Wearing beautiful tall headdresses, grass skirts and hand tassels,the dancers perform the Otea, moving their hips to the fast, pulsating drum beats.

ADDITIONAL ENTERTAINMENT:

1) FIRE KNIFE DANCER

2) HAWAIIAN MUSICIANS

3) NEW ZEALAND: Maori poi balls which are balls attached to long cords, are twirled and swung about the body to form patterns,in a lasso-like high-energy display. In some cases, flaming poi balls are used. Canoe dances are also performed to tell a story of the Maori people migrating by canoe from Polynesia to New Zealand.

Anne 'Mati' was great for my sister's luau themed bridal shower. Everyone knew the theme of the shower, but only a few people knew that Anne was coming. The shocked looks on my family's faces and their overall enthusiasm was fantastic. Everyone felt included and comfortable trying out some new hula moves. Having her there really tied the party together and I couldn't have asked for a better party! Thank you (Mahalo) Anne 'Mati'.

Thanks to Aloha Hula DC our guests had a wonderful time at the surprise 50th birthday lu'au party we threw for our cousin. Anne "Mati" kept in constant contact with me up until and even following the event. She was very punctual and accommodating. She was a surprise to our guests as well....and they truly enjoyed her. She was the icing on the cake for our event. I would highly recommend her to anyone. We will definitely use her again if we through a themed event.

I had a luau for my son who retired from the military. Mati was our greeter and handed out leis to our guests as they arrived. She performed several different hula dances and taught our guests how to hula. She posed for pictures with everyone who wanted one (and everyone did!), and even handed out gift boxes as our guests were leaving the event. We kept her quite busy and she handled everything with grace and professionalism. I highly recommend Mati, 100%, without a doubt! She is beautiful inside and out, and is very gracious and sweet. So much fun! If you want the best, hire Mati from Aloha Hula DC!
