Roseville resident teaches Hawaiian dance, values at hula school
Her name is Dana Marie Kaleina’ala O Ka’ahuona'ali’i Enstad, but everyone calls her Kalei. Originally from the balmy Hawaiian island of Oahu, Enstad moved to chilly Minnesota more than 30 years ago and has remained rooted in the cold-weather climate ever since. She misses Hawaii with its warm weather and ‘aloha spirit,’ but she’s doing her best to keep it close: the Roseville resident runs a hula school in Brooklyn Center.
