Hula students explore the depths of the art of hula by learning the mele (poetry) of our songs because hula interprets the mele and tells a story through its motions. By learning the mele, we are able to dance the songs with our inner spirit, with deeper feelings of aloha (love).
Students also learn about the Hawaiian culture, music, language and dance. Gradually they learn to use some of the implements that the Hawaiians used to portray some of their songs. Students are taught the proper Hawaiian names for the hula steps, which are introduced as they learn their dances, and they may also be exposed to dances of other cultural groups.
Beginning 5:45 pm | Intermediate 7:00 pm | Performance 8:30 pm
$45 – $60 per month depending on the class
