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 will be participating in the 8th Annual Napa Aloha Festival. A 2 day event this year is sure to give you a lot of Aloha!!
September 19 and 20th will be a great time for Hawaiians and Hawaiians at heart to come together in solidarity.
Vendors with Hawaiian crafts, foods, demonstrations. Remember to bring non perishable food items that will be donated to local food banks.
Kehaulani Hula Studio will not have classes on 6/21/2015, Father’s Day. We wish to extend our best to ALL Fathers and single Mothers this Sunday.
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”!
Passing on traditional hula practices like lei making, is a goal of Kehaulani Hula Studio.

A few members of Kehaulani Hula Studio traveled to the garden isle of Kaua’i 7/10-20/2014, attending the 4th Annual Ka ‘Aha Hula ‘O Halauaola. Hula practitioners, dancers all converge on Kaua’i for 10 days. From hula to implement making to clearing invasive vegetation from sacred grounds to working in the lo’i were all apart of the experience. We enjoyed ourselves and learned a lot. We look forward to sharing our adventures on Kaua’i with you all. Next conference is set for Hilo, Hawai’i in 2018. See you there!
