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.

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.
