As a co-star on television, he has made appearances on Lost, Cold Case, Strong Medicine and the Wayan's.  He has travelled the U.S. with the national tour of The Exonerated, where he originated the role of Robert Hayes, in which the Los Angeles Times claimed the production, "...a riveting Actorsʻ Gang staging examining capital punishment and the justice system in chilling terms." He also originated the role of Ned in Batboy, the Musical, which eventually went to Broadway.

In 2009, he enrolled at the University of Hawaii at Hilo, and this summer earns his Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication and a Certificate in Elementary Education.

Ken's membership in Screen Actors Guild, American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, and Actor's Equity Association, combined with his professional training and experience over the past 25 years, has prepared him to share his knowledge of exploring the "Power of the Voice" through the heightened emotional states of Happiness, Sadness, Fear and Anger.

Wassa Dances with Aloha #12

Lara McIntosh and Marla Simms

Wassa Dance Logo

About the Facilitator(s)

LARA MCINTOSH believes that anyone who moves is already a dancer. She has danced all her life. As a performer, teacher, and choreographer,

Lara explores rhythm, spirit, craft, and community to unlock the movement potential in others. An active member of the Seattle drum-and-dance communities for many years, her Afro-infused dance style is inspired by travels to Brazil and Mali, West Africa. “Wassa” is the Bambara name Lara received during one of her visits to Mali. It means “one who acts for joy and fulfillment.” Her curiosity about movement and cultures, combined with a deep love for music, are lifelong muses. She offers residencies in local schools and intensive retreat-style workshops internationally. (Photo by Michael Harthorne)

MARLA SIMMS started her love affair with the human body and it’s magic from the inside out. She experienced the boldness and explosive energy of a gymnast in her youth.

During her teens and beyond, she discovered qualities of movement under the loving and eclectic watch of teachers and choreographers. She then turned to the focus of exploration of other’s bodies through the study and practice of massage. She has been a massage practitioner and massage educator for 20 years. For Marla, the body continues to be a venue of art, joy, and discovery.
