What you'll do

First off, we will start off with a brief history of traditional Samoan Fireknife dancing. From there, will begin to learn and practice the basic moves and see them demonstrated with fire. If you are confident enough at the end of practice, you will have the opportunity to showcase your newly acquired skills on fire and once the evening has ended, will finish up with a final Fireknife performance by myself and my students!

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, poi spinners, musicians, drummers, and more! 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. All the support helps me to continue to do what I love and spend my off time with my daughter that is almost 2. Building our future, all the generations between within our communities, and all people we come in contact with and inspire. Thank you for all your support!

I got this as a present for my husband. He had a lot of fun, and my son and I had a great time watching him perform. The location is also a perfect spot, because there’s a great family beach and playground right there.

My girlfriend and I attended and were not sure what to expect. We had been disappointed that there were no Luau’s on the island so booked this hoping to get a similar experience. The performers blew away our expectations when they allowed the participants to not only practice the moves but also to light the fire and record our own performance after learning the moves. We got a full demonstration of the fire dancers capabilities and also walked away with a new skill and had fun and made friends doing it.

This was an amazing experience! I did not know the history of the fire knife before and the difference the dance expression between the cultures. Our host was a fantastic teacher, breaking down moves that seemed super complicated to where the participants can understand.

The show was amazing, Pomaika’i was not only a great entertainer, he was patient and a great teacher with the kids. His assistant Mason was also great.
