This is a beginner's Hula course (no experience necessary), open to men and women ages 16 and up, consisting of 3 intensive 2 hour Hula training classes on Saturdays: June 28, August 30, & September 27. Hawaiian language, culture, and values are all a part of Hula, but the main focus will be on learning the dances of Hawai`i. Students should dress comfortably and bring water, snacks, paper and pens/pencils.
