Seated Baby Hula

We believe that the littlest keiki can dance hula and have welcomed dancers as young as two weeks old! Caregivers dance together with their keiki so that everybody learns something! Most hula are performed seated, so keiki can explore hula from the safety of a familiar lap. The 25 minute class time is just right for developing attention spans.
