Keala Fung (Dancer/HI) is originally from Los Angeles California, but found her heart and soul in Hawaii, where she has currently lived for 11 years. She has a lifetime of training in many different styles of dance including ballet, contemporary ballet, and jazz. She has a BA in Dance from the University of California, Irvine, and has since branched out to many other disciplines of dance such as latin partner dances, and aerial dance. She is also a certified Pilates instructor, and a certified Barre fitness instructor.
Not too long after moving to Hawaii, Keala joined Hawaii’s premiere burlesque and cabaret theater troupe Cherry Blossom Cabaret, and started her burlesque journey. She is now headmistress of BurlyQ U: Cherry Blossom Cabaret’s School if Burlesque. Prior to joining CBC, she has danced, toured, and performed with various Tango, Salsa, and Contemprary dance companies in Los Angeles, California.
Around the same time Keala started her burlesque journey, she also joined Dancers Unlimited, a new dance company in Hawaii. She has been a proud member of DU since almost it’s very beginning, and is so honored and humbled to be a part of its growth. In 2013 she toured in Shanghai with DU. Currently in 2017, she is incredibly honored to be dancing with DU once again, only here in NYC.
