WISDOM :: HULA TEACHINGS :: HAWAIIAN CULTURE
written by Kumu Kea
RealHula is a website sponsored by
Na Puakea O Ko'olaupoko, a halau (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.

"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

"I wanted to create something children would want to watch over and over and dance with. Children love to watch and emulate other children, so we use the children as the teachers. I guide the learning. It is my hope that this DVD will add to the repertoire of dances for teachers of children as well as for the young hula dancer who has no teacher available. It is my hope that it will be a source of entertainment and self-learning for the child watching as well. It is, after all, the perfect gift for grandmother to bring home to her little dancer - a real hula learning experience from Hawaii'i."
