New Location Reminder

In case you have not visited this web site or have followed us on social media lately, you may have missed the big announcement:  The Barefoot Hawaiian has moved its business and Dance Studio from the former 1401 E. Oakton Street Des Plaines location to its new location at 458 Northwest Highway, Des Plaines. 

While the pandemic is still active and with mandates, we have no walk-in service at this location for anything other than for registered students taking dance classes.  For all business matters such as booking or inquiring on entertainment, please call our office at our regular phone number, which has not changed.  Any in-person business needed is by appointment only.  Our Hawaiian Shop is also closed indefinitely.  The dance studio officially opens September 20.  Registered students may just walk in for their class.  Parking is available in the back or on the street in front.
