A Little ‘Aloha’ Comes to Rockford Public Library
Rockford’s own Hula Girls to perform at Main Library
The Aloha Hula Girls will perform at the Main Library on Saturday, February 23rd from 11:00 – 11:45 a.m. as part of the Saturday Spectacular program series, funded in part by a grant from Target. The program is open to all ages and no registration is required.
The Aloha Hula Girls are a professional Polynesian dance troupe featuring wahine (women) and keiki (children) performers. Their show takes the audience on a tour through the Polynesian Islands including dances from ancient and modern Hawaii, Tahiti and New Zealand. While it may be cold outside, join RPL and the Aloha Hula Girls for a warm, tropical morning full of ‘aloha.’
“The Saturday Spectacular series of programs are perfect way for families to enjoy a morning together. The performers are fabulously entertaining and the shows are free and open to the public,” said Sue Stevens, Youth Services Manager at Rockford Public Library. “Plus, where else can you see real hula dancers in the middle of Rockford’s winter?”
“Sharing my culture with our dancers and audience makes me less homesick,” said Janel Hunter, co-owner of the Aloha Hula Girls. “Kids especially love our show and are so excited to talk to us afterwards. It brightens my day.”
