Celebrate Autumn!

Hula Masterclass

Celebrate Autumn! Hula Workshop is a skills-based, choreography intensive focused on mind/body alignment and coordination. Aligning and expressing environmental connection is at the heart of traditional Hawaiian dance, so it’s little wonder that the Hula moves dancers and audience so deeply! The workshop will take participants beyond the scope of usual classroom practice, to explore uniquely authentic Hawaiian communication with the environment through the Hula. Plus, there will be plenty of opportunity to align with the season as we learn a beautiful, easy-to-follow Hula.

Workshop Content:

The Dunham Barre: Where Dancers are Made

Coordination: When the Hands Go, the Eyes Follow

Kaona:  Finding Meaning in Hawaiian Song


You’ll come away with a useful new tool that fosters growth and provides greater access to the restorative benefits of Hula.
