“Love it!!! I’ve been looking all over for a class just like it. Lokeanna is an awesome teacher. Not only does she teach the dance moves, but she shares with you the island culture. APP classes are really the highlight of my week – I look forward to coming each Class. Thanks Lokeanna :)”

I hope that the “karma” of the coconuts comes back to you ten times over … lots of bookings and lots of new students! I had three different woman inquire about your classes so maybe we’ll see some new faces in the next class. You are great!”
– Terri B.
“This class is the first time I’ve really been able to stick to a workout routine in over a year. Lokeanna has such a passion for hula/tahitian dancing and the island culture that you don’t realize how fast class goes by. Never done it before? No worries! Everyone is so friendly and supportive that you’ll pick it up in no time. “

– Cheryl (Kelela)
“My daughter and I look forward to coming to class every sunday. She is only 2 years old and knows a lot of the songs and dances. Hula has brought us closer and I am glad that my daughter loves hula as much as me. I know that we will always have something in common.”
– Debra Delgado

“My daughter and I do this class together. It’s our special bonding time! I love this class! Any one can “shake it, shake it good!” And I sweat, so I count it as a workout. Love the music too! There is no dance experience required, yeah.”
– Kiane (Diane)
“I really enjoy dancing with A.P.P. Since the first day of class, I felt welcomed with open arms & eager to learn the dances of the islands. A.P.P. is not only a great workout, but is a place where all walks of life have come together to share a common interest. In other words, through A.P.P., I have met my second ohana. :)”
“Great class for both beginners and advanced hula dancers…Lokeanna is vivacious, gracious, energetic, and a patient instructor…her style of teaching is firm and yet she brings a lot of fun and her own personality to her teaching — GREAT CLASS, GREAT WORKOUT!!”

The moves were so gracious and you could understand what each move meant. My family and friends really enjoyed the entire performance. Thank you for recommending Audience Participation to us. That was so much fun and really got our guest involved and having so much fun! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sharing this day with us and for making it extra special with such a wonderful island performance!”
