About The Project

Lead Choreographer and Artistic Director, Kalae Kaina, has been studying the art of Belly Dance for 20 years. Her adoration of this dance form shows in her passion and dedication to her dance, a love of dance she hopes to pass on to her students. She is the director of Hawaii’s premier Contemporary Fusion Belly Dance companies, Shakti Dance Movement & Devi Dance Company. Native born, with her lineage tracing back to Kalapana on Hawaii Island, Kalae is excited to share her first production pulling inspiration from her Hawaiian roots. This dance showcase will feature a full length show inspired by the paintings of local Artist Rochelle Ortiz aka Teardrop. Rochelle’s Hawaiian Goddess series is inspired by observing our beautiful aina getting covered with concrete, slowly losing her beauty due to mankind and our relentless pursuit of destroying our planet. The artist wanted to give mother nature a face and a voice in hopes that we remember that without her, we will not exist. The collaboration between dance artist and visual artist came quite naturally as Kalae and Rochelle dance together! Join us as we bring art to life through dance.
