this was added to the first post of this thread too, but based on a photo from the hawaiian room, emerson hotel, facebook page, Auntie Te Moana Makolo danced at both the hawaiian room, lexington hotel, and the hawaiian room, emerson hotel. a little google-fu revealed this:

the book "aloha america: hula circuits through the u.s. empire," suggests that there is a direct relationship between the hawaiian room in the hotel lexington in NYC http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=32416&forum=2 and the hawaiian room at the emerson hotel in baltimore: "Te Moana Makolo was part of the last group of Lexington dancers in the early 1960s, becoming the lead choreographer of the show. She, too, had an itinerant career as a professional hula dancer. After the Hawaiian Room closed in 1966, she opened a Hawaiian room at the Emerson Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland, and continued on an overseas USO circuit with the performer Johnny Kaonohi Pineapple in the early 1970s." http://books.google.com/books?id=AgH9xngze1cC&pg=PA207&lpg=PA207&dq=%22te+Moana+Makolo%22&source=bl&ots=1ClAG4ribc&sig=_owqzHg60DseWXL_EjSqfEqGd3k&hl=en&sa=X&ei=UTyeUPHaFI3D0AHH7oG4Aw&ved=0CEAQ6AEwAg#v=onepage&q&f=false

here is a photo that some have id'ed as her dancing in baltimore.
