Connecting with FAMILY

Ann Nishida Fry

Corporate Communications Senior Manager/Proud Mom

Ann's mother took her to Bon Dance celebrations when she was a child, and now she takes her own daughter and son. It’s a reminder to her of what’s truly important in life.

Like Hawaii itself, a Bon Dance welcomes people of all backgrounds. Whether the steps are familiar or totally new, each dancer soon finds the rhythm and all feel connected together.

Our lives move to a rhythm that welcomes all.
