Our Background

How We Got Our Start

Kehaulani hula Studio (KHS) was formed in 1988 in Waimanalo and Kalihi-Palama on the island of O`ahu with the blessings of the late Kumu hula F. Palani Kahala.

KHS prides itself in teaching hula basics steeped in tradition to help build a foundation of hula. 

Ancient (Kahiko) and Modern (`Auana) hula are taught in class based on age and experience.

Hula and Covid 19

How to keep everyone safe.

It is our kuleana to protect our Native Hawaiian/ Polynesian communities from COVID-19


These are unprecedented times. The COVID-19 Delta Variant is surging through our community and we cannot continue to allow Hawaiians/ Polynesians to be the group with the low vaccination rates and high case counts; with severe illness; with preventable death and trauma within our lāhui.


We have kuleana to protect our ‘ohana, to keep them safe from harm. There are multiple tools we can turn to, and it is up to use to choose to use them.
