About Nenette Alejandria Mayor, Polynesian Dance Instructor

At the age of 6, I joined the Kealoha Polynesian Dancers of Winnipeg, and under the instruction of Belle Perez de Tagle, I learned hula 'auana (modern hula) and tahitian ote'a. I have also had the pleasure of performing at various cultural and family-oriented events throughout the city, including the Red River Exhibition Parade in 1977 where our hula group participated with our own float.


After briefly living in Hilo, Hawai'i, I returned to Winnipeg and opened Makana Aloha Hula School and Performance Group to share my knowledge and love of the dance. My dancers and I also had the pleasure of introducing the hula to a new generation through workshops and family events.


In 2005, Makana Aloha was featured in an article in Flare Magazine entitled "Shall We Dance?" about dance as fitness.


By 2006, with growing popularity and a fully loaded student waiting list, I made the difficult decision to close down Makana Aloha Hula to focus on my budding writing career so I could be home with my young children.

Today, with my kids in their teens, I am able to return to teaching the dance I love and sharing the Spirit of Aloha with due respect and reverence.
