WISDOM :: HULA TEACHINGS :: HAWAIIAN CULTURE
written by Kumu Kea
RealHula is a website sponsored by
Nā Puakea O Ko'olaupoko, a hālau (school of Hula) in Kailua on the Island of O'ahu in Hawai'i. We are located about 30 minutes from Waikiki and Honolulu. We offer a series of Hula Teaching Videos based on authentic chants and songs taught in our halau. In this way, you can bring our Hula Classes into your own home.
HULA CLASS SCHEDULE
"Our purpose is to share the true essence of the Hawaiian culture as expressed in the hula. In so doing, I share the tradition and style that has been given to me during my many years of training with Kekauilani Kalama as I was being prepared to receive the 'Uniki Rites as Kumu Hula. It is my intention to share the history, culture and poetry embodied in the song or chant presented so as to enlighten and educate devotees of the hula where ever they may reside."
And remember...Kumu Kea is always available to "talk story" in her Korner

Hula Retreat June 19-24, 2017
My days are filled with joyful preparation for this first-ever hula retreat being presented in concert with a couple of my long time students. We are taking this wonderful opportunity to learn about the rich history of one of the most sacred sites on Oahu: Kualoa. This site was so revered in ancient times that canoes were required to lower their sails as they sailed past as a token of their respect for Kualoa.
During the retreat I will share the stories associated with the area, you will make your own hula implement, we will learn both a hula kahiko and a hula`auana and have a huaka`i (field trip) to the area. We will present our ho`okupu (honorary gift) to this area when we perform our two hula during our visit to this area. I am very excited about the opportunity to share this rich history with other hula folk. The retreat facility is located in the valley of Ka`a`awa - right next to Kahana Valley. There you will enjoy comfortable accommodations, delicious food and a rich learning experience. Please consider joining me there! Kumu Kea
