Hawaiian Hula

This hula class gives the student a low-impact and scalable workout that will bring the islands to you at any age! Active participation in the class will teach you the meaning behind each graceful gesture in our mele, it will immerse you in the aloha spirit, and it will coordinate the mind, body, and soul, expressing our love for the beauty and abundance of one of the most special places on Earth. Focusing mainly on hula ʻauana, and dancing to some of the most beautiful compositions ever created we will develop the unique concentration that unifies our abilities tells a story, and impart our audiences with the same connection we feel to the ʻaina.

Kendall Kanoa Kukahiko

Hawaiian Hula Instructor

Kendall Kanoa Hawley began studying Hawaiian hula over 12 years ago in Phoenix, AZ where she was born and raised. Of Native Hawaiian descent and great-great-granddaughter to Kumu Hula Rose Joshua, she began dancing for the chance to connect with her own roots but soon found a passion unlike any other she had in her life. The pursuit of a continued challenge later led her to Tausala Productions, under the direction of Fina and Oliva Schwenke, where a concentration on Tahitian Ori broadened her horizons even more.
Now having made the move to Los Angeles, she is very happy to have found a home as lead dancer for the Nani Kai Dancers, a professional Polynesian dance troupe performing throughout Southern California, and studying as alakaʻi and keiki (kids) class teacher under Kumu Hula Hiwa Bourne with Kuhai Halau ʻO Ke Kukui Malamalama O Ka Hula. Through education, activism, and dance, Kanoa strives to encourage more accurate knowledge and appreciation for Polynesian culture and history throughout the world.
