Hula Basics - ALL LEVELS
This class features very basic steps used for a beginner to start learning Hula. Hula is a dance from the islands of Hawai'i. This is a graceful dance used to tell the stories of the Hawaiian People. In order for you to properly learn the Hula you would need to study all of the Hula Basics. This includes the terminology as well as the proper execution of each basic step. Aiwa has learned from Halau Ilima by Kumu Kas Nakamura who teaches her style of Ilima Hula from The Ilima Hula Studio in Hawai'i under the direction of Kumu Hula Sisters Luka and Louis. The studio is now run by Lani Girl.
