Ki’i Workshop in Sonoma, July 8, 9, and 10th, 2015

Hula Mai and their Kumu, Betty Bruno and the Hawai’i Preservation Society is holding a Ki’i (puppet) Workshop this week in Sonoma. It is a chance to learn an art form rarely seen outside of Hawai’i. Not many people know of this art form.

Some of our haumana are attending the workshop and are giddy at the chance to learn this art form.

Much aloha at Aunty Betty, Kumu Maile Loo and Maoli Cook for taking the time out of you’re lives to enrich ours.

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”!
