“I hired Halau Ka Lā Kapu for my daugter's first Lūʻau December 2018, and wow we had a blast. No pāʻina is complete without mele and hula, and their performance definitely exceeded my expectations! Kelly made the whole process easy from communicating to being clear about the services they offer. Still to this day I hear of how much fun my guests had and how much they enjoyed the performances, Halau Ka Lā Kapu absolutely brings the spirit of Aloha to the 505. It is without reservation I recommend this Halau for your next Lūʻau, pāʻina or any special occasion!

"Their performance was absolutely mesmerizing. It made my mother's 70th birthday party one of the most memorable that I've been a part of. Mahalo. " - Tony Derieux
just a little over one year ago my husband and I celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary and I was so happy to have contacted Ka La Kapu Polynesian Dance School for our very special Hawaiian themed anniversary.
The other day we were at Chama Brewing Company for dinner and we talked about how much we enjoyed having you provide us with entertainment for our anniversary.
When Rick and I decided to celebrate our anniversary we knew what we wanted and there was no question as to whom we wanted to provide us entertainment. Especially since we were going to follow our anniversary party with a trip to Kaui a couple weeks later.
When I contacted your studio I was so impressed with your response and how kind you were to provide us with a short notice dance show.
Your dance team was so beautiful and graceful I was certain we were in Hawaii that evening. Your smiles and gentle demeanor was so very impressive I wanted to give each of you a huge hug. The three of you were so pretty not only with your outer beauty but with your inner beauty and elegance.
Thank you for providing us our entertainment for a special anniversary, something we will always treasure.
Rick and Eleanor Harris
Our annual A Taste of Diversity event honors and celebrates how cultural diversity contributes to the richness in our communities. Ka La Kapu shared the beauty and deep tradition that is Polynesian Dance. Their dances expressed a connection across cultures that made us all feel human in a shared appreciation for our natural environment. It's critical for us to continue these cultural exchanges. Keep dancing Ka La Kapu!! - Steven Lucero
"Ka La Kapu Polynesian Dance School put on a program as the finale for our summer reading program. It was so much fun to have a different and unique program to offer our patrons. The dancers were so professional and enthusiastic about their craft that it created such a positive atmosphere in our library. The patrons loved the dancers and enjoyed being able to participate during one of the dances, children and adults were shaking their hips the rest of the night! The fire dancer was an added bonus and was such a great compliment to the dancers. We loved having the school out to do a performance and would recommend them to any entity looking for a great all ages program." - Jenna Wells, Teen Librarian
We’ve worked with the Ka La Kapu Polynesian Dance School a number of times - from performances at the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market to workshops at ¡Globalquerque. Whether performing, teaching or participating in workshops we are offering, Kellie and the rest of the school always engage with good quality and a high level of enthusiasm. They’ve been a real pleasure to work with.
