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, 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? 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 (sorry, but there are many tacky, wanna-be Polynesian groups here in Utah). I book on their behalf and can deliver bigger shows up to 8+ dancers, live band, drummers, etc.

Although Im now a proud ONE WOMAN SHOW, I have also performed several events here in Utah since 2013 including Verizon Wireless in West Vally, Hokulia Shave Ice, Southwest Airlines, Utah Cultural Celebration Center, Treehouse Children's Museum in Ogden, 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.

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!
