Anthony Simmons & The Maui Dance Advocates put on this Dance-a-thon in Rainbow Park in Makawao to raise money and awareness about their quest to amend dance laws in Maui. Currently any establishment in Maui serving liquor must adhere to strict laws regarding drinking & dancing, and where you can dance in said establishments. So far Anthony has made some progress, but he has a long way to go, and your support helps. Maui Dance Advocates plan on holding future Dance-a-thons until the laws are changes.
The event's participants received pledges, and danced for 6 hours out in the gorgeous Maui sun with awesome DJ's & music, hula hoops & poi, and delicious food & juice. It was basically a super fun all-day party with a lot of dancing. We hope you can all make it out to our next one.

This video was shot on the Canon 7D. I replaced the UV haze filter with an 85B warming filter, and for most of it I also used a rotating rainbow star filter. All effects were done 100% in camera.
