Participation in this hula halau (school) is one of the best introductions to Hawaiian language and culture. Children will learn both hula kahiko (ancient hula) and hula auwana (modern hula), with the basic steps as well as oli (Hawaiian chants). Children will learn a true appreciation for nature, as well as how to make flower lei. Final Winter Performance on Sunday, December 17th.
Malia is an authentic Kumu Hula: a recognized hula teacher, officially having graduated after 17 years training from her teacher, Pulu’elo Park. Fluent in Hawaiian, Kumu Malia frequently composes her own original oli (sacred chants). Kumu Malia has an affinity for teaching young children. For the last decade she has developed lessons specific to infants, toddlers and preschool aged keiki. She also enjoys sharing classic hula and songs with the elderly. In keeping with her tradition, she is an observant and reverent student of nature and keeper of the land – the ‘aina.
