Who We Are

Aloha! I am Rika, a Polynesian dancer, entertainer and teacher. I perform dances of Tahiti, Hawaii, New Zealand and Samoa and love to share the aloha with people at their special events including birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, company parties, graduation parties, luncheons, elderly homes, Moana themed kids parties, summer camps, etc. I am also a fire poi dancer! I have a fun, educational, authentic, beautiful, interactive show that lasts up to 45 min. I am local in Ventura and will travel throughout Ventura, Santa Barbara and the San Fernando valley up to Pasadena or West LA. If you want more dancers to perform, we can provide up to 3 dancers as we focus on quality not quantity. I have been traveling all over the world as a dancer and Polynesian ambassador on Celebrity cruises and Carnival cruise lines, lived and danced in Tahiti and Hawaii and was a cultural consultant, costume designer and dancer for Disney’s MOANA movie. I look forward to bringing some aloha spirit to your next event!🌺❤️https://youtu.be/hQcF-M8yKbc

Flashback to dancing with Tevaka at D23 for the Moana movie! I made the costumes as well. Tevaka is the group who did the music for Moana. I was a cultural consultant, choreographer and costume designer for the film. Was a great experience!

Hawaiian Hula Movement workshop is coming!!!! 🌺 This is a 3 week Intro-basic Hula movement for Adults workshop that will focus on Auana (modern) hula, with it's graceful hand gestures and soft swaying hips. For ages 35-85, so we are focusing on women who want to age gracefully and dancing the hula is a great way to do that! It helps to combat arthritis and stiff joints, flexibility and can also help prevent dementia by learning choreography. The choreography will be simple and beautiful, graceful and you will fall in love with hula! Rika, a Polynesian dancer of 30 years will be teaching the class. She has studied hula under many teachers including Casey Kamao Kono from Maui, Kumu Frank Kawaikapuokalani Hewett, Aunty Kilisitina Vainuku and Paki Allen. Rika has been dancing hula all over the world, including on Celebrity Cruises and Carnival cruise lines as a Polynesian ambassador, teacher and dance performer with Henry and Paki Allen. Rika is very excited to share some hula movements in a fun and relaxed atmosphere! Mondays starting November 5-November 19 from 6:45-7:45pm.
