ABOUT OUR OHANA

Our director, Olohana Strong, is a born native of the island of Samoa. Olohana's Polynesian Dance began in 2019.  We embrace the cultures of Hawaii, Samoa, New Zealand, Tonga, Tahiti and Fiji!

Our mission is simple: we strive to spread love and kindness in a world so divided through Aloha Spirit! We empower our community to step into the true authentic person they were created to be. Dance is a unique opportunity to embrace the culture through appreciating the history, exercising tradition, and admiring the powerful art of Polynesian dance.


All of our classes are available at the Washington Township Recreation Center in Centerville, Ohio.

Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for class updates and local events!


Living with Aloha Spirit is living like Jesus!

"Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance." 

1 Corinthians 13:7
