Sessions introduce the basics of Hawaiian hula and ori Tahiti. Beginner haumāna receive the necessary training to learn and execute the motions properly. Whether you have previous Polynesian dance experience or are just starting out, this class will help you achieve the fitness and conditioning requirements for advancement - basically we whip you into hula shape!

We come together as a group to learn, celebrate, and share the dances of the islands, as well as the importance of the history behind them. We approach learning and sharing hula with the utmost respect, as it is a gift and privilege to be cherished.
