Akemi Welsh started Polynesian Paradise Dancers (PPD), a professional Polynesian entertainment company specializing in the traditional dances and music of the Polynesian Islands, in 1993. The company since has had the honor of sharing its culture with audiences across the globe: PPD has visited 40 states and done 10 international tours, “spreading Aloha around the world.”
