KALEINANI O KE KUKUI
Born and raised on the island of Oʻahu, Alyssa was introduced to performing arts at a young age growing up dancing hula and tahitian. She began her career as a Polynesian Entertainer at 18. Performing in various lūʻaus across Oʻahu, Alyssa has had the opportunity to dance alongside Hawaiʻiʻs most talented entertainers and learn from some of Hawaiʻiʻs most prestigious Cultural Practitioners.
Her journey has brought her family to Vancouver, Washington where she is currently the Program Director of Kaleinani O Ke Kukui. Although moving away from her home in Oʻahu has been a challenging transition, being able to share the culture and make a difference in the next generation of cultural practitioners has been one of the highlight of her dancing career thus far.
