with Iolani, Huen and Mey Jen
The Hula is a form of dancing native to Hawaii. It provides entertainment but has its roots in ancient ritual. The purpose of Hula dancing is to convey meaning through movement, intertwining the performers with the spirit of the universe by unifying their existence with nature. For each course, the group will practise the basic techniques (ami, ka’o, kaho lo etc) and one song (mele).
