This is a wonderful dance troupe, as good as you'd see at any expensive luau. And it's free! Don't miss this show!

Unbelievable! Grab a table outside at Ruth's Chris and enjoy adorable 2 year old hula dancers all the way to authentic hot fire dancers! Perfect evening.

“Show time currently changed to 7pm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Great show. The area around the fountain is like auditorium seating but there are also additional proper fold out chairs which are also placed in front of the stage. Please note that the show time is currently changed to 7pm not 6pm, the show lasts an hour and it appears that Thursday the show is 'fire' night.

“Fun and Free”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We just happened to be eating at Ruth's Chris on a thursday evening when this started below in the courtyard. You can see this on Mondays and Thursdays at the shops at Mauna Lani. Dinner on the balcony at Ruth's Chris are great seats, but seats right at the fountain stage are even better and it is all free. The kids loved the fire and the dancing. It got really good once it got dark. The kids favorite was the war dance. Highly recommended for an evening and won't leave you broke. Fantastic for families. The Hula is not too different than paying $100 for the other shows, so this is the way to do it. A good taste of Hawaiian culture.
