Our best-selling image of dancer Cirony performing To Ask a Blessing. Her graceful hula takes place on stark, lava rock at Makena, home of Maui’s last lava flow. The stage for Cirony’s peaceful sunset hula is enhanced by her beauty as the aka ula (red sunset) glows.
Hawaii’s melting pot is reflected in Cirony, who is a mixture of Hawaiian, Spanish, Portuguese, Filipino, and German blood. She wears a raffia skirt beneath her hula skirt. The raffia comes to us via the Tahitian raffia palm. Her leis are woven from native palapalai ferns and the maile vine. Both of these precious plants were used to decorate the altar of Laka, goddess of the hula.
Raised in Kokomo, Maui, Cirony began dancing at age 4. She has not stopped since! Cirony has traveled the world to perform and share her Hawaiian hula heritage.
