Dive into Hawaiian culture through hula dance.
Hula kahiko (‘ancient’ hula)
Discover the joy of oli (chant), physical conditioning, dance posture and technique, storytelling and so much more.
Hula auana (modern hula)
Explore various aspects of our world, Hawai’i and human nature through hula performed to Western-influenced instruments and melodies.
Lei making, ukulele jams, costuming etc. can be covered in separate sessions on request. Workshops focusing mainly on choreography will also be scheduled.
Private and Skype lessons also available.
CLASS SKIRTS (pāʻū)
For regular students, pāʻū are required for class – plain white or plain royal blue (see below “What do I wear”). You can make your own (click here for tutorials) or I’m happy to make for you, please message for price and details. If you already have a pāʻū not in those colours, that’s also fine to wear for now.
🌺 I’ve never danced hula before, is this for me?
Yes, these Hawaiian hula dance classes do not require prior knowledge or experience.
🌺 I’m a more experienced dancer, can I come?
E komo mai! It never hurts to keep your basics strong and hula is always most fulfilling in a group. There will obviously be choreography but it’s not always the focus, so bear that in mind.
🌺 Can kids take this class?
This class is not ideal for kids and any children must be accompanied by a participating adult.
If you have children, a local group, or school that would like a child-friendly hula class, please get in touch.
🌺 What do I wear?
– PLAIN (ideally black) T-shirts or tank/vest/long sleeve tops; no crops, bras, branding or bare backs/bellies
– Pāʻū (hula skirt): white or royal blue class pāʻū (see above) or one you already have
– If your pāʻū is open to one or both sides, wear leggings or shorts underneath
– If you have a sarong/pareu, make sure it is tied knee-length or longer and wear leggings or shorts underneath
– If you don’t have a pāʻū/pareu then leggings or joggers are fine to start with; shorts (e.g. board shorts) are also OK but at least knee-length
– Hair should be neat and ideally off the face (ponytail, bun, hairband etc.)
– Barefoot is standard; if you need to wear something on your feet make sure it is non-slip
– Please no fake lei or oversize hair accessories – especially not plastic (our oceans thank you 🧡)
