Keiki Hula 7-12 Year Olds:  Sundays 9:30 am – 10:30 am

Children who participate in hula hālau (school) receive one of the best introductions to Hawaiian language and culture.

Your child will feel truly appreciated and supported by their loving, vivacious teacher, Kumu Mālia.

 

Kumu Hula Mālia Helelā

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.

Kumu Malia Ko’i’ulaokawaolehua Helela strives to live a life of grace. Her halau, which meets at Still & Moving Center, is Na Hula Ola Aloha. Completing her uniki under Kumu Hula Puluelo Park in 2002, she now teaches hula and oli to a wide range of students, from infants and toddlers to kupuna. Malia studied oli (traditional Hawaiian chant) under Kumu Hula Keola Lake. She continues to look to the beauty and grace of the Hawaiian environment for grounding and inspiration.

Eriko Jones エリコ・ジョーンズ

Eriko はスティル&ムービングセンターのオフィシャル通訳で、当センターのウェブサイトの翻訳や日本人ゲストからのお問い合わせなどにも対応しています。2010年から当センター専属のクム・フラ マリア へレラの通訳として日本やカウアイ島にも同行しました。我々はErikoの暖かく魅力的な人柄と素晴らしい言語能力スキルを高く評価しています。

横浜育ちのErikoは1993年にサンディエゴの大学に通うためにアメリカに移住しました。生物学でUCSDを卒業後、イルカのトレーナーになる夢を叶えました。同時にロサンゼルスに所在していた学校に2年間通い通訳の訓練を受けました。

クラス、ワークショップ、弁護士事務所、病院、ビジネス・ミーティングなど、幅広い分野で通訳/翻訳の仕事をしてきました。イベントプラン、コーディネートもこなし、マーケティングの分野でも日本人と英語圏の人々との間で架け橋となってきました。

Erikoは普通の通訳ではありません。朝日が昇る際に行うヒウバイ(ハワイ伝統的海での浄化儀式)では海に入り、ハイキングで山に登りフラのグループの通訳を勤めます。またスティル&ムービングセンター内にあるブティックEのファッションモデルもこなし、パフォーマンスでは魔術師/シカの役を演じました。フラのパフォーマンスで司会をした経験もあります。

イルカの調教をした事がある珍しい人物であるErikoは明らかに3ヶ国語を話します: ドルフィンズ (イルカ語)!

Eriko serves as Still & Moving Center’s official Japanese/English translator of our website and as our contact person for all Japanese guests. She has traveled with and translated for our kumu hula (hula master) Malia Helela for since 2010. We prize Eriko’s warm graciousness as well as her excellent language skills.

Born in Tokyo and raised in Yokohama, Eriko moved to the USA in 1993 to attend college in San Diego, graduated from UCSD with B.S. Biology, and made her dream come true as a dolphin trainer! She also spent two years at a school in Los Angeles training to be an interpreter. With her American husband, their bilingual little boy, and many American and Japanese friends, she’s constantly working in both languages!

Eriko’s English/Japanese translation work, both written and spoken, has taken place in many settings: classes, workshops, in courts and law offices, hospitals, trade shows and business meetings. She does event planning and coordination, as well as marketing – mediating between the Japanese and English-speaking cultures.

Eriko is no ordinary translator. She goes into the ocean at sunrise for Hawaiian hiuwai ceremonies and hikes up mountains to interpret for hula dancers.  She has spontaneously modeled clothing for our boutique and played a role of magician/deer in a performance. She even emceed for a hula performance at Ala Moana Center Stage one time!

As one of those rare individuals who has trained dolphins, Eriko evidently speaks a third language: Dolphin!

This fun and casual event will be an opportunity to see dances that span the last decade of the halau and more. The performance will be in the style of a class, with family and friends gathered to both dance and observe. We will begin with a video presentation of Malia’s teacher, Kumu Hula Pulu’elo Park, giving a blessing to the halau on Feb 1st of 2003.  We will then move gracefully into kahiko (traditional) and ‘auwana (modern) dances.  You may see the same dance done in different styles as we welcome all who know the dances to join in! The goal of this event is to give a glimpse of what it is like to be a part of our halau. No fancy costumes or high brow attitude; just dancing lit from within by the light of aloha.

Lei Aloha – Beloved Lei

Tuesday, December 10
9:00 am – 2:00 pm
$95

Experience a uniquely Hawaiian perspective to visiting sacred spaces with native Hawaiian practitioner Malia Helela. Learn hula and lei making at beautiful Waimea Valley on O’ahu’s North Shore! Learn to appreciate aspects of nature that you might never notice on your own. See Hawaii with new eyes.

“Ask permission and give thanks – that was the Hawaiian protocol that extended into every aspect of life in nature.” – Nana Veary

The day begins with making our first lei with a native ti leaf. We offer this lei at a Hawaiian place of worship, Hale o Lono Heiau, asking permission to enter the valley. A sense of welcome arises from creating a personal relationship with a place. Carry that perspective forward in your life.

A lei symbolizes life, with beautiful memories and loved ones strung together like flowers in a lei. Weaving our way through Waimea Valley, a traditional home of priests in ancient times, we honor our role as the string that holds the beautiful moments of our lives together.At the boundary between common and priestly land, Malia will offer a chant in Hawaiian to state our peaceful intentions.

On the Great Lawn, we will settle in for a morning of instruction. As an experienced and encouraging kumu hula (hula teacher), Malia will teach even people with two left feet to dance with confidence and grace. You will dance holding the lei kui (lei of flowers) that you strung with your own hands.

If you have ever dreamed of bathing in a mountain pool under a cascading waterfall in Hawai`i, here is your opportunity. Imagine yourself coming upon a beautiful waterfall and mountain pool. As part of our closing ceremony, we will gather in the face of Waimea Falls to weave a single lei hipu`u as an offering of our thanks. Any interested person is welcome to join Kumu Malia in swimming the lei out to the waterfall. Safety is assured with the presence of City & County Lifeguards. Activities include lei making, hula lesson, lecture, ¾ mile walk to Waimea Falls, gift and closing ceremony. After the workshop, participants are welcome to keep their flower lei or release them into the ocean.Price $95 (package deal available when combined wth Sunlit SkiesStill & Moving reserves the right to cancel this event if there are fewer than 4 signups.  Transportation available, please inquire.
