About our founder
Glenda Florez is the founder of Halau Kalama. Her vision was to be able to teach the art of Polynesian Dance to everyone at a discounted and affordable rate. She also wanted to share the Culture through music and dance to other Nonprofit Organizations and Events throughout the Community. Glenda continues to support Halau Kalama by providing classes and entertainment with her students in exchange for assistance in studio rental so that the Community can enjoy dance at the lowest rates possible.
