An article from Hawaii Tribune-Herald about our Kumu Hula Maile Yamanaka. If Yoshi had not met Kumu Maile 13 years ago at the Shipman House Bed and Breakfast in Hilo, Hawaii, Wailele Wai Wai would not have existed today. Thank you Kumu Maile!

NO RESERVATIONS: The Scotiabank Dance Centre’s 14th-anniversary celebration, Dance Hotel, had supporters dine and 20 companies perform on four of the Davie-at-Granville facility’s floors. Running from Aché Brasil to the Wailele Wai Wai Hawaiian hula group, acts included long-established Ballet BC, Paras Terezakis’s Kinesis company and Rosario Ancer’s Flamenco Rosario. Unlike the real hotels alongside and nearby, no one was kicked out for making a noise. In fact, it was encouraged.
Yoshi Yamamoto and dancers of the Wailele Wai Wai Hawaiian hula ensemble represented one of 20 companies performing in the Scotiabank Dance Centre’s Dance Hotel celebration.
