Alex "Kid Karma" Hutaff-Bautista


Alex "Kid Karma" Hutaff-Bautista from Maui, Hawaii started growing his burning passion for Breakin' and the hip-hop culture at a young age. Aspiring to leave the islands he called home to pursue a career in dance, he joined the 808 breakers crew and moved to San Francisco. The Bay Area served as a milestone as he joined his crew on a year-long journey throughout the West Coast - competing every weekend. He now teaches full-time on the island and is ready to continue his journey.

Katerina "Konomi" Dominguez


Katerina began dancing at 6 years old at the Maui Academy of Performing Arts (MAPA),  and quickly fell in love with the joy and freedom of dance. She soon decided that she wanted to pursue dancing and the arts as a career.
She has trained with tap legends such as Jason Samuels Smith, Savion Glover, and Chloe Arnold, as well as with renowned hip hop and contemporary dancers and choreographers such as Keone and Mari Madrid, Dee Caspary, Travis Wall, Sonya Tayeh, Shane Sparks, Brian Friedman, Tony Czar, and Ian Eastwood. In addition to dancing, Katerina enjoys singing and acting, and has performed in professional and community theater productions on Maui including Smokey Joe’s Cafe and CATS. At the age of 16 she began teaching hip hop, jazz, and tap at MAPA. Four years later, she opened Maui’s first and only hip hop dance studio, Konomi Dance Works LLC, where she added contemporary, jazz funk, and k-pop to her lineup of classes. She has produced and directed from concept to conclusion, the studio’s annual recital, “The MIX” at both the McCoy Theater and Castle Theater at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center. She is excited to work with the students of AAPA and hopes to nurture each individual’s true passion for dance.
