Based in Chico, Chico Aloha Dancers has been performing in Butte County for 15 years. The current director is Judy Hamamoto who took over the group when Maricel Kealani Kates retired at the end of 2016. With her blessings and encouragement, Chico Aloha Dancers have continued to carry on the tradition of sharing the aloha spirit by performing for venues such as Chico State Laxson Auditorium's Spotlight Performance, Thursday Night Market, assisted living facilities, and private events. Classes are available through CARD. The Chico Aloha Dancers will perform at the Red Suspenders Parade Saturday, May 18 at 11 a.m. For more information, we can be contacted through email or Facebook /chicoalohadancers.
