NPR Sunday Puzzle (May 28): Highway Dance

NPR Sunday Puzzle (May 28): Highway Dance:
Q: Think of a five-letter name of a company that is often seen while driving on the highway. Drop the first letter, and re-arrange the four remaining letters to name a dance. Or, go back to the company's name and drop the second letter, then re-arrange the four remaining letters to name an event where the dance may be performed. What is it?
This one doesn't take long to figure out; I had it within about 2 minutes. I focused on the name of the dance and the location, and worked backwards to the company name.
Edit: Okay, just in time for the 3-day weekend, here's the answer.
A: UHAUL --> HULA dance at the LUAU
