My name is Kahealani Kamahele. I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. I attended Star of the Sea School in the wai'alae district of O'ahu. Upon graduation I moved to Southern California to attend college. I have my Masters degree in Organizational Leadership from Chapman University and I am also a Certified Essential Life Coach practicing in the south bay.
I currently teach Dance of Hawaii at Loyola Marymount University. In the past, I have taught hula at UCLA for the UCLA Hawaii Club (Hui 'o Imiloa) for 10 years and also owned my own hula school together with my ex-husband for 12 years. I have participated in various festivals over the past 12 years such as the Lotus Festival, The LA Festival, The Pacific Island Festival, Ho'olaule'a Northridge, San Diego and Alondra Park.
I started my own halau in 2007 in Rolling Hills, Ca and currently teach in Gardena and Torrance.
