Kehaulani Hula Studio: Keiki Hula Day Camp

KHS Keiki Hula Camp 2015

Kehaulani Hula Studio proudly presents:  “A Day In The Life Of A Hula Dancer”.

Keiki (children) will get a chance to live like a hula dancer! They will learn a hula about a canoe that will take them to Tahiti and back to Hawai’i. They will get a chance to print block prints on “pseudo” kapa and make paper flower leis. They will even get a chance to make “poi”. Yes, they will get the chance to pound it themselves!

The camp is designed so the keiki get an understanding of what a hula dancer goes through in daily life and what it takes to be apart of a hula school.

The camp is open to all that want a chance to experience Hawai’i through the eyes of our Keiki.

“e hele mai kakou”!
