Wainani Leialoha Makuakane Hansen was born and raised here in Hawai`i. She is a 2000 graduate from the Kamehameha Schools and holds a BFA in Dance Teaching/Performance, as well as a minor degree in Sociology from Chapman University. Since she was 5 years old, she was immersed in the art and culture of Hula. Her love for dance led her into intensive training in Jazz, Hip Hop, Modern, Ballet, Ballroom, and Aerial Silk dancing; as well as the opportunity to perform professionally throughout Hawai`i, the United States, Europe, and Asia. She has been lauded by her mentors and colleagues for her work as a performer, choreographer, and dance/movement educator. She currently trains and performs with Samadhi Hawai’i and Volary Aerial Burlesque as an aerialist. Aside from her dancing abilities, Wainani is trained and certified in Pilates (Body Arts and Science International), Yoga (Yoga Works ®, RYT), and GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® trainer – GYROTONIC® Level 1, GYROTONIC® Level 2, GYROTONIC® The Archway, and GYROTONER®.
