1:1, group, and Zoom/Skype lessons also available.

CLASS SKIRTS (pāʻū)
Regular students wear plain royal blue pāʻūfor class (see below “What do I wear”). You should make your own but I also offer to make for you, please message for details. If you have a purchased or other hālau pāʻū, that’s fine to wear initially.

FAQ

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.

Is hula just for women?
No! Absolutely not, everyone is welcome. If you have any questions, please get in touch.

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): regulars wear royal blue pāʻū; new joiners or beginners can wear a purchased or other hālau skirt initially

 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 are also OK but at least knee-length (e.g. board shorts) 
 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 🧡)

Mahalo!
