Lili‘u E (DVD)
Lili'u E is the second of our foundation numbers for the well-rounded hula dancer. This mele builds on the footwork perfected in Kawika and adds several basic steps to the dancer's repertoire. While this is a hula classic from our tradition, it is suitable for entry-level dancers as well. Lili'u E is a mele inoa, or personal song of praise for Lili'uokalani, the last monarch to sit upon the throne of Hawai'i. Pumehana models the dance for you while Kumu Kea is your teacher. We are proud to present this hula "must-have" to help build the foundation for the classically trained hula dancer.
