Established 2005


Many thanks to all our customers over the years for inviting us to take part in your special event.

We strive to provide quality dance entertainment as well as to break cultural stereotypes through sharing and teaching others about Polynesian dance and culture. We are honored for your time and business and providing such lovely testimonials to share. We are especially appreciative for repeat customers that have us return year after year and recommend us to others. We can't think of a higher compliment.  We are grateful!  Mahalo nui! 

"Aloha Julianne,
I can't begin to express my gratitude for what you did for our retreat! Everyone LOVED you and it was just perfect. Mahalo.
Can't wait to see you July 22nd."

"Thanks again for a wonderful performance last night!  Your dancers were beautiful, graceful, and appropriate for our family-friendly event, and the sets were varied and highly entertaining.  I especially appreciate your graciousness in joining us for so many photos as well as the effort made to tailor the performance to our Christmas theme.  Many of the children were mesmerized by the dancing and we all enjoyed so much seeing them on stage.  I wish you and your group much success and look forward to enjoying your performances again in the future!"

"Hula Hut performed at our school function and they truly made the event special. They performed different Polynesian dances with the elegance and grace of true professionals. It was wonderful to see an authentic hula performance! In addition to their dancing, they offered the students an education on the history of Polynesian dance and also included them in a Hula Mini-course. They were professional and brought the happiness of the islands to our event while being completely appropriate for our audience of middle school age students. I would recommend them a thousand times over!"
Christine Brown, Fayetteville Middle School PTA Coordinator & parent    Fayetteville, NY

"I very much enjoyed working with Julianne in preparation for this year's Ithaca Festival, where she performed with her students and with dancers from Cornell's Hawaiian studies program.  I was particularly impressed that over only 8 weeks, she was able to ready her Ithaca dancers for three performances over the course of the Ithaca Festival weekend."
Emoretta, Ithaca Ukulele Player & Instructor   Ithaca, NY

"Julianne performed impeccable Polynesian dances at our Luau last summer and had our guests in awe over her fluid,

effortless movements. After performing she also taught several dances to the crowd making it easy to learn and fun.

Julianne is extremely professional and knowledgeable about Hawaiian customs.
We highly recommend her for your future gathering, party or event."
Carol Fuller and Christy Peter Karamardian, Old Hundred   Ithaca, NY
