Kumu Kea

Na Puakea O Koʻolaupoko is a school of Hula. In Hawaiian, we are called a Hālau Hula. Our Kumu Kea is Pattye Kealohalani Wright.  She founded Na Puakea O Koʻolaupoko in 1973. We are located in Kailua on the Island of Oʻahu. Known as the "Windward Side," we are nestled beneath the rim of the Koʻolau mountains, just 30 minutes from Waikīkī and Honolulu.

Preview of the first hula step taught on Basic Hula!  In the full video, Kumu Kea also covers posture and styling for hula.  This complete 2 hour DVD is the first one listed at the top of the page.

Butterfly Free

The teaching video for Butterfly Free has finally been moved to our new site!  This song, its choreography, and its teaching by Kumu Kea, are a gift to our students, as well as to other dancers who are not yet students.  The butterfly is a symbol for the transformation that awaits humans who are eager to fly.
