Keiki Hula

The innocence in the eyes of our keiki expresses excitement and glee! Each keiki offers a gesture of aloha in the hand and feet motions. Their dedication to the craft exemplifies the teachings of their kumu hula.

Wahine Kahiko & ʻAuana

Wahine Kahiko & ʻAuana

Hula kahiko are the traditional dances of Hawaiʻi. Strict with rules and etiquette, these dances are performed honoring composer, choreographer, and kumu hula. Maintained as they were first taught, many dances are centuries old. Rigorous training and discipline are required before the dancer may perform outside of the hula school.

Western contact in the Hawaiian Islands brought new musical instruments and an easy going attitude to the native dances. Fewer rules govern the dances performed to ʻukulele and guitars. Lively and colorful, these ʻauana dances celebrate story and culture with a modern approach.

Event will be held in the Naupaka Ballroom at Waikoloa Marriott Resort & Spa
