Dawn Mahealani Douglas has been entertaining audiences on stage and on camera for over 20 years. She grew up studying other dance styles and arts, but she fell in love with the dances of Hawaii, Tahiti, and New Zealand after studying at a halau on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. Mahealani's Polynesian Entertainment began with Dawn giving solo performances as a Hula and Tahitian dancer in Atlanta, Georgia in 2017 and quickly grew to a group of performers and theatrical show such as those seen at attractions in Hawaii from the blowing of the conch shell to the pulsating dances of Tahiti, to the storytelling of the Hawaiian hula, to the skills of the New Zealand Maori people, and ending with the exciting fire knife of Samoa. Now performing over 200 shows a year across 6 states, you can see Mahealani's Polynesian Entertainment at corporate events for companies with headquarters in Atlanta or on U.S. military bases in the Southeast, as well as at popular attractions and even in features on all the local news stations. Mahealani’s Polynesian Entertainment perpetuates Hawaiian and Polynesian cultures through entertaining and educational experiences and strives to inspire aloha aina (love of the land).
