What you'll do

First off, you will get a history of traditional Samoan Fireknife dancing and a hands on lesson on how to construct traditional Ti leaf accessories worn by Fireknife dancers. We will then move on to working on stance, form, attitude and technique. From there, will begin to learn and practice the basic moves of Fireknife. If you are confident enough at the end of practice, you will have the opportunity to showcase your newly acquired skills and make a great video to take home for friends and family! Once the evening has ended, I will give a demonstration with both single and double fireknives! Private or group bookings are available. Please inquire about unavailable days as bookings may be adjusted based need. Mahalo!

Pomaikai

Aloha! My name is Pomaika'i and I was born and raised here on Kaua'i. I have been a full time Samoan Fireknife dancer for several years and have performed in luaus, weddings, private parties (including for celebrities) and even concerts with thousands of spectators. I have worked with and continue to work with many different entertainment groups ranging from aerialists, jugglers, and poi spinners. During the day when I am not performing, I am able to work with the local youth by providing lessons and featuring my students in local events.
