Mirielle Thornton

Found this link…  this is “MA” one of my Kumu’s or teachers at the Mai- Kai Polynesian Restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale, FL (open since 1956).  She actually danced at the Mai-Kai as one of the original dancers who was brought over by musician Toti (to her right).  As the years passed she ended up marrying the owner of the Mai-Kai.  She then moved on to choreograph the show and eventually owning the restaurant with her family.  I am very fortunate to have worked with her throughout the years.
