AHA Hula Classes 

Papa Lāpule (Sunday Classes)

Sunday classes are focused around the hula development of our keiki. Hula & hālau life is a great way to get started in hula as well as build lifelong skills. The classes are separated by age. Often the more enthusiastic achievers are asked to participate in the upper level keiki class.

10am - 11am: Keiki Class (ages 5yrs - 9yrs)

11am - 1pm: Keiki Class (ages 10yrs - 13yrs)

Papa Pō'akahi (Monday Class)

Monday & Tuesday nights are entry level classes. If youʻve never danced hula or have, either way everyone starts here. All classes are designed to expedite haumāna in becoming a hula dancer. 

7:30pm - 10pm

Papa Pō'alua (Tuesday Class)

Monday & Tuesday classes can be exhilarating as well as exhausting. Nui ke aʻo i ka papa hula - thereʻs much to learn at hula class.

7:30pm - 10pm

Papa Pō'akolu (Wednesday Class)

Intermediate level hula night. 2nd year haumāna are joined by other hālau members to forward their self mastery, hula skills and AHA repertoire. Often haumāna opt out of advancement, or assessed and asked to repeat the class. The repertoire may take a few years to acquire.

7:30pm - 10pm

Papa Pō'aha (Thursday Class)

AKA Papa Hula Leʻaleʻa, the happy class! Often but not always as intense as other classes. This class usually, but not always focuses on hula auana. Knowing the basics is recommended.

Papa Pō'alima (Friday Class)

Intermediate/Advanced/Masters class is by invitation. This class is for dancers with a higher skill set. Kumu and/or Kukui are always on the watch for haumāna who have potential.  Haumāna who are selected are usually asked to attend their assigned class as well as try out the advanced class until assessed.
