I'm an independent dance teacher in Seattle and have been bringing students to
residencies at Kalani the past twelve years. It's a fabulous place to be a presenter/facilitator. I've always deeply appreciated the respect and support Kalani offers me as a creative professional sharing my arts in their facilities. This is a very rare situation where one doesn't need to be famous to have an opportunity to high caliber residencies.
Many of my students also become repeat visitors as Kalani weaves its embracing webs of aloha all around us.
I've seen many great things develop at Kalani as time goes by. One of the most exciting for me from year to year is watching the landscaping become more and more thoughtful and beautiful. And then there's the whole aquaponics, composting and solar collecting set of projects. So inspiring!
