Sanoe Garcia-Suguitan, owner and founder of Akala Dance Studio, leads a team of instructors in teaching hip-centric movements during hula and Tahitian dance classes. Across three different dance spaces, the 45-minute classes impart basic steps in a fun, noncompetitive setting, ranging from the smooth, foot-grounded sways of hula to the energetic rhythms of Tahitian dance. The studio also puts on productions, in which professional dancers don grass skirts and colorful headpieces for special events such as weddings, luaus, or amateur competitions.
Pono Home's sustainability consultants assess residences to help homeowners and renters figure out ways to reduce utility bills and improve the overall wellness of their families. During a typical session, an expert sweeps the entire home and identifies specific energy-draining culprits, such as appliances or the many extension cords leading back to the neighbor's home. The consultant can also check the cupboards for unhealthy GMO ingredients and offer suggestions for healthier overall food storage.
Royal Party Rentals ably outfits gatherings of all sizes, supplying necessities from tents to silverware. Rent a fete-finishing touch such as a 10'x10' white canopy tent to provide shade for a pool party ($125), or choose a portable 9'x12' dance floor so up to 14 couples can safely bunny hop at the company picnic ($243). Should additional flooring be in order, options such as a 6'x8' stage ensure that the birthday boy or girl stands 12 to 24 inches above the guests as they are pelted with traditional birthday pies ($57). A 48-inch heart-shaped table ($10.25) provides a sweet resting place for Marie Louise china ($0.70–$0.75/plate) or a romantic setting for festive arm wrestling.
Frank Uehara watched as his neighbor, who had just returned from Japan, showed him a new piece of gear?an airsoft gun powered by springs and gas. Frank was intrigued as he held the pellet gun, and began to practice the sport. But as airsoft grew over the next 30 years and Frank continued to pursue it, he came to realize that many airsoft fields were unwieldy for first-time players and saw his chance to change that. At Action Pursuit Hawaii's outdoor field, he provides an easy introduction for first-time airsoft players while also welcoming competitors of all skill levels into challenging play. The facility?s safety officials remain on hand to oversee players who blast pellets at competitors and exchange witty Shakespearean taunts from behind the field?s giant tilted plastic columns and plywood barricades.
