We teach Hula Basics, Kahiko (Ancient Traditional) and
'Auana (Modern) accompanied by music, live or CD.
We also educate in hula protocols and practices significant to our hula including oli.
Our style of hula stems along the lineage of our Kumu Blaine Kamalani Kia along of our lineage of Loea Kawaikapuokalani Hewett, the Late Kumu John Kaimikaua and the late Kumu Darrell Lupenui.
Hula Pa'u and Black Tshirt is required for class and hair in a low bun.
We teach Ori Tahiti Basics and Foundation, along with Ote'a, Aparima, Ahuroa and drumming. Our drumming style stems from the tutolage of Kumu Antz Waipa Manaois of Ote'a Api. Kumu Antz, his siblings and Nt Nalua have been there from our start and will always be in our hearts.
We don't claim to have the best drumming, simple and drive the way we've been taught.
This year we presented our drumming at Heiva SD and the judges were impressed.
