First of all, Sarah is an amazing teacher. I took lessons from her to learn a hula for my husband as a surprise at our wedding. I had never taken a dance class before and she made it so easy. She really took the time to best figure out my learning style, which is the mark of an excellent teacher.

For my hula, she created a dance that was specific to the moves that I naturally do best. She took the time to teach me, not only the moves, but also the meaning behind the movements. This made such a difference in the intent and storytelling aspect of the hula, which is what I originally wanted to convey to my husband.

I cannot emphasize enough how amazing and fun Sarah is as a teacher. She encourages and motivates in the perfect ways and the outcome is amazing. My husband was completely surprised and loved my hula on the wedding day. His family is Hawaiian and it meant so much to me that they appreciated the dance and all the work that went into it. They were really impressed and I have Sarah to thank for it. I recommend her 100% and am so grateful that she was my teacher!

Sarah is very professional and accommodating! She was able to make our wedding very special and FUN!! Our guests really enjoyed the musicians that she was able to book for us...they were AWESOME!!! I can't believe that I had so much fun at our wedding watching our out-of-town guests do the hula and then do some tahitian dancing! Our videos on this are priceless, I've watched countless times since.

Thanks to Sarah, we had a really memorable and enjoyable (not to mention FUN) reception.

The Hula lessons to the Out of Town guest, and the father of the bride was the most fun that I ever had at a wedding, or any other celebration. I would highly recommend Wanna Hula to any one that wants to get entertained while learning how to hula.

Sarah was the HIGHLIGHT at our wedding reception! She danced one song solo and then did an audience participation number that had our guests cheering until we were hoarse! Definitely do the audience participation bit-- your guests will have a blast! I can't say enough about how fantastic Sarah was, and how much our guests enjoyed this surprise performance.

In the time leading up to the wedding, Sarah was responsive, professional, and very sweet. I highly recommend Wanna Hula--- Thank you for making our day Sarah!

If you are thinking about hiring Wanna Hula for your event, stop thinking about and DO IT! You will never regret this decision. I first found Wanna Hula on YouTube. After months and months of searching for entertainment for my Oahu wedding, looking through countless websites & videos. As soon as I watched the first video, I knew my search was complete.

I was in contact with Sarah Chang for about a year before my wedding date. I must say, Sarah’s customer service skills are top notch, and you will not find anyone more pleasant or professional to deal with.

The package I chose was an ukulele player, 5 hula dancers, 3 musicians & a fire knife dancer.

Our ukulele player/singer, Ashley, was just what I was looking for for my entrance into the ceremony. I had countless compliments from my guests regarding her performance, i.e. “she gave me goose bumps when she started singing at the ceremony!” Ashley was joined by 2 other musicians at our reception, and did an outstanding job accompanying the dancers for their act.

The hula dancers, led by Sarah Chang, were so graceful. I have seen many performers in Hawaii, and to date, Wanna Hula’s dancers have put on the best show, and were absolutely beautiful.

Everyone was impressed with our Fire knife dancer, who put on a great show outside our reception location. He had our guests and passerby’s ooh-ing and ahh-ing with his expertise by the moonlight.

I can’t express how much my husband and I appreciate all the hard work and dedication we received from everyone at Wanna Hula, namely Sarah Chang. She bent over backwards to make things work for our event. I know if I ever need to hire some entertainment in Hawaii again, that I will definitely re-hire Wanna Hula, there is no question about that.

Mahalo, Sarah and all of your wonderful entertainers!

Sarah is the person to go to if you're wanting to do a Hula or Tahitian dance on your big day! I wanted to surprise my husband with something special and fun. Since there was only a month and a half left until my wedding day, I wasn't sure if I would be able to learn and memorize a routine fast enough. After an hour and a half with Sarah, I was so happy I decided to go for it! Sarah is very sweet, patient, and good at what she does. In a short amount of time, she was able to teach me a routine based on what movements looked best for me within my capabilities. She was quick and creative. I opted to get a video recording of the routine so I could practice. With that said, Sarah does her very best to work with you to create a unique dance that best suits you, but it's all in your hands from there. I was very pleased with my experience and highly recommend Wanna Hula! My hubby's face during the surprise was priceless and I'll never forget it :) Thanks again Sarah!

Sarah,
Mahalo nui loa! Your solo performance and the tahitian dance were both absolutely beautiful and everyone was mesmorized. I truly appreciate how you and your dancer included yellow, my favorite color, into your costumes. Your performance was a huge highlight of our wedding. thank you for honoring our requests, for your professionalism, and for the ALOHA SPIRIT :)
Through the beauty of your hula dance to Lei Halia, which we dedicate to the memory of my beloved uncle, I felt his shining spirit around me.
