Dawn Mahealani Douglas has been entertaining audiences on stage and on camera for over 20 years. She has studied and performed many dance styles, but she fell in love with the dances of Hawaii, Tahiti, and New Zealand after studying at a halau on the island of Oahu. Since launching Mahealani’s Polynesian Entertainment in January 2017, she has booked over 200 shows a year in 5 states ranging from family events to corporate events and solo performances to group theatrical shows. Some of her corporate clients include U.S. Air Force Base Entertainment, Google, Turner Broadcasting, Chick-fil-A, The Home Depot, Harley-Davidson, Clayton State University, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Zoo Atlanta, Auburn Parks and Recreation, Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital, and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta just to name a few. Dawn’s dancing has also been featured on CBS46 and FOX 5 Atlanta.
Mahealani's Polynesian Entertainment began with Dawn Mahealani Douglas offering solo performances as a hula and Tahitian dancer in Atlanta in January 2017 after over 20 years of experience as an actress and dancer for several talent agencies and entertainment companies in the Southeast. She soon found that audiences loved seeing the dances of the Pacific Islands as much as she loved performing them, so she began adding performers and a full program such as those seen at the hotels 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 to the exciting fire performances of Samoa. The group consists of 3 female dancers, 2 male fire performers, and 2 child dancers. The company also has partnerships with other event professionals such as musicians and caterers and can provide sound and lighting for any venue. Now performing over 200 shows a year across 5 states, you can see Mahealani's Polynesian Entertainment at corporate events for companies such as Google or even on U.S. Air Force bases, as well as at cultural festivals such as Atlanta International Night Market or popular attractions like Zoo Atlanta.
