Reasons to book a hula lesson

#1 When in Hawaiʻi...

When in Hawaiʻi you will experience many things special to our island culture. Although Hawaiʻi is a US State, it's extremely different than being anywhere in the continental United States. You will have the opportunity to try authentic Hawaiian food with local favorites being laulau, kalua pig, lomi salmon, and poi. You will hear a different language- Pidgin is widely spoken by locals of Hawaiʻi; It is an official language. More and more Hawaiians are also practicing the Hawaiian language. You will also take note of our cultural dance- hula! Many Hula Hālau practice in various parks, and you will see the cultural art form performed at many hotel poolsides and lobbies. It seems like the perfect opportunity to engage in such an activity.
