Have you always been interested in hula and the Hawaiian culture? Here is your opportunity. This year-long course enables students to learn basic Hawaiian language, Polynesian dance, and history. Through hula basics and choreography, the students will learn discipline, grace, teamwork, and commitment to reach each dancer’s full potential in hula. Students learn techniques to dance hula gracefully through hand gestures, body movement, and facial expression, in addition to learning basic Hawaiian language and Hawaiian history. This class performs in many of the school events, as well as some outside events.
Nā Wāhine O ‘Olu Hula is a year-long, PE hula class in which you receive 5 PE credits after completing the course. This would take the place of your regular PE class if you make it through auditions. Classes are every Tuesday from 4:30-6:30 p.m. If you have any other extra-curricular activities that would coincide with this day and time, please do not try out as attendance is essential. Prior to auditions, we have two workshops. One is a hula basics, and one is hula choreography. Attendance in both workshops are required to audition. Hula experience is not required. Come join us, and embark on this journey of hula and the Hawaiian culture.
