Spirit of the Pacific Islands
Auntie Francesca, owner and director of Spirit of the Pacific Islands, was Marie's first teacher of Hawaiian hula and ori Tahiti. She continues to support Marie in her education, success, and overall efforts to share the art form and culture.
"Marie's passion and love of Hula is expressed within her dances. She honors the traditions and movements of Hula with grace and dignity. I am very proud to have had Marie learn from our Halau and to have performed with Ka Pa Hula Napuakamahinaamekala ~ The Spirit Of The Pacific Islands."
- Francesca Anching Trego, Ke Po'o ~ Spirit Of The Pacific Islands
Auntie Yolanda, owner and director of Tamali'i, Hayward, CA, taught Marie through intense training sessions. Marie is extremely blessed and privileged to receive one-on-one training, cultural education, and guidance. Auntie's generosity and support is very appreciated by 'Ike Roa haumana.
