Kaiholunuie Polynesian Dance Company (KPDC), is Connecticut's premier source of Hawaiian Luau Entertainment. We will give you a spectacular show that will leave your audience smiling and feeling as if they have been transported to the islands. Please ask about our safety certified and fully insured fire performers.
KPDC expresses the cultural vitality of Polynesia through many dance styles of the South Pacific. Our performance company consists of a thriving multicultural group of ladies, men, young people, and keiki (children), who come together as extended ohana (family), to learn the art of, and deeper meanings of the hula, as well as other forms of Polynesian dance. Those dance forms consist of Tahiti Ori, Maori dance from New Zealand, and Samoan Siva. While KPDC maintains a commitment to authenticity, we strive to be inclusive to all those who seek deeper knowledge of Polynesian culture and share in aloha spirit. KPDC has performed at multiple venues such as the Connecticut Science Center, Mystic Aquarium, and the Dragon Boat Festival in Hartford, CT. KPDC performs across the state of Connecticut, into Massachusetts, New York, and Rhode Island. KPDC also performs at schools in an effort to maintain our educational partnerships. It is our mission to educate and inform all youth through the arts, providing workshops as a platform to instill a deeper understanding of Polynesian culture, artwork, regalia, and history. Many of KPDC's artists are educators, parents and professionals who have a deep desire to preserve and perpetuate the cultural heritage and history of the people of the South Pacific.

Kaholunuie Polynesian Dance Company is based out of Wallingford, Connecticut and was founded in 2004 by Kekai Colello, Artistic Director. She has over forty-five years of Polynesian dance experience, and over thirty years of experience in choreography and instruction. She holds a BA in English with an emphasis in multicultural literature, and a Masters Degree in Education. She is a graduate of Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT.

Kay is so very easy to work with and dedicated to her dancers and the audience. Many who attended the event absolutely loved the dancers and had a great time. I was even getting comments today of how they made the event a great night! I am looking forward to having them back to perform again.

We hired Kaiholunuie Polynesian Dance Company for an annual neighborhood picnic, this year with a Luau theme. They were very flexible, accommodating our date despite having a conflict, and very well organized. We were more than pleased with our choice. A key factor was that the dancers and entertainers were of Hawaiian/Polynesian heritage - we wanted authenticity. In the end we got more than just dancers - musicians with ukeleles and drums, an education in Hawaiian/Polynesian culture, and really fun, family-friendly audience participation. Highly recommended!
