Kuhi no ka lima, hele no ka maka.
Where the hands move, there let the eyes follow.
A rule in hula.
The responsibility of each hula dancer is to develop a deep sense of humility, commitment, dedication, discipline, respect, and love for others. It is equally important for each student to develop a good attitude and self-respect.
Halau Hula Classes
Level I: Basic – Coed, non-performing. Keiki, opio and adult classes.
Level II: Intermediate – Coed, non-performing. Keiki, opio and adult classes.
Level III: Advanced – Coed. Keiki, opio and adult classes.
Selected students will be invited to perform at events or Production Programs – Performance skills are incorporated into the teaching. Training will be based on helping you develop into a skilled performer. Performing is an essential part of our curriculum providing the means in which we achieve our vision as a Halau. Participation is based on need and ability as determined by Kumu . All Level III students are urged to keep the length of their hair as long as possible (wahine) and hair color should be tasteful and as natural looking as possible.
To advance to higher level classes, students will undergo ‘uniki or testing to ensure the student possesses sufficient knowledge, and is ready to graduate to the next level.
