CLASSES

Why take classes with HHUK?

We train and teach with guidance from Kumu Hula Rich Pedrina in Oʻahu/Hawaiʻi. Classes are delivered through a hybrid format of weekly Zooms and in-person sessions in Essex and central locations around the UK.

  • Body – physical conditioning, flexibility, mobility
  • Mind – new language, new skills
  • Dance – strength and grace, emotional expression
  • Connect – global ʻohana of hula practitioners
  • Discover – oli (chant) and mele (songs & poetry)
  • Explore – aspects of our world, Hawaiʻi and human nature
  • Focus – personal development and growth
  • Build – integrity with our hula line
  • Share – Hawaiian cultural arts
  • Experience – stories from Hawaiʻi past and how they perpetuate through to the 21st century
