About
Aloooha!

My name Sunny "Lehua" Purcell. Im currently the proud owner & director of Mahana Dance Company in California. But because I currently reside in Salt Lake City, Utah, I wanted to personally extend my talent to you fine folks of the mid-west!

My specialities are FIRE DANCING (fire poi, burning coconuts, torches), Hawaiian/hula, Tahitian, and New Zealand (poi balls) dancing. Im a big hit at children's parties, pre-schools, and events that are looking for a pop of tropical entertainment. I love to entertain, and share my culture in my shows. I aim to bring authentic vibrant costumes, authentic energetic dancing, and engaging story-telling at each show.

Looking for more than 1 dancer? Ive got you covered! I network with the most AUTHENTIC groups here in Utah (literally...many have moved here STRAIGHT from Hawaii!) that meet my standard of professionalism and authenticity (as there are many "tacky" Polynesian groups in Utah). We team up to deliver bigger shows of 7+ dancers, live band, fire shows, drummers, etc.

Although I'm currently a proud ONE WOMAN SHOW, since 2013 I have serviced full luau shows/events in Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Oregon, South Dakota, and Washington. Bookings include Indian reservations (Nez Perce, Sioux, Blackfoot tribes), Verizon Wireless in West Vally, Hokulia Shave Ice, Southwest Airlines, Utah Cultural Celebration Center, Modern Expo, Traverse Mountain Association in Lehi, Utah's Department of Public Safety, and scores of weddings, birthdays, and senior homes.

In addition to running my dance company in California, I am of Samoan heritage, a choreographer, costume designer, and have performed at world famous Polynesian Cultural Center in Hawaii. Sharing my culture is my passion and life's calling. I look forward to working with you and bringing the excitement and spirt of "Aloha" to your next event!

Will travel. Worldwide.

We were so amazed with Dancing with Lehua! We had over 300 guest at our event and they are still talking about how awesome the show was. They had great crowd interaction and really made our event good. They Lei'd our guest, posed for pictures and were very easy to work with! Thank you, and we will be booking again in the future!

Everything was great. The only criticism I would have is that it only lasted 30 min total. Other than that it was great.

They did an excellent job. Our employees loved the dancers and they involved the audience in dancing. They showed up on time, and were great. Thanks so much for making our day awesome!
