Halau Ka Lei Kukui Hi'ilani is a traditional educational school that combines learning of Hawaiian language, culture, history, and arts for a deeper appreciation and understanding of the mele we sing and move to. Our haumana have different backgrounds, rich experiences, and are at various levels of training. Dancers and aspiring dancers of all ages are welcome. We offer classes for all levels of knowledge. Students with prior Hula experience will be assessed and placed in the appropriate level class.
We also offer ukulele instruction. See class details below.
Recreation hula will be hosted on Zoom May to December 2023.
