From the Island of Oahu to the Island of Manhattan
Kim Davidson grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii, where she started dancing hula before she can remember. She started out with Hui 'O Kamalei, a studio known for its innovative and playful choreography. Later, she began to dive deeper into the traditional hula kahiko with kumu Lehua Hulihe'e, and in high school, looking for a bit more excitement, she discovered Tahitian dance with Te Vai Ura Nui.
She has performed hula, Tahitian, and Maori dance professionally in New York and all over the East Coast for over eight years and is committed to the authentic representation of Polynesian dance and culture.
Kim teaches our beginner/intermediate class, facilitates our advanced group sessions, and manages Ori Manea's operations.
