In the spirit of welcoming families to attend, keiki ages 10 and under receive free admission, with ages 11 and up paying $12 per person.

Dance Maui is dedicated to bringing together Maui’s culturally-diverse dance organizations to present their work as one dance community. This year’s event features many well-known performance companies, such as ʻUlalena, Darshan Dance Project, Samba Maui with the Village Pulse Dancers, Akari Ueoka, Maui Aerial Arts, the festival’s host Adaptations Dance Theater, and many more.

“Dance Maui is driven by its mission to recognize the breadth and depth of Maui’s vibrant professional dancers,” remarks Adaptations Dance Theater Co-founder and Dance Maui Director Nicole Humphrey. “This festival is all about our shared experience as performers and audience members. It creates channels for collaboration and partnership between Maui dancers, and provides the opportunity for all of us to enjoy back-to-back performances of unique movement, creativity, and expression.”

“The first time I saw Keōpūolani Park Amphitheater, I felt magic. It is a beautiful setting for an outdoor dance performance festival: it is accessible, casual, kid-friendly, and all set upon a little grassy hill in the heart of Maui,” said Humphrey.
