    Join us for 2 sessions of hula dance web classes! We are lucky to be instructed by the wonderful Kumu (teacher) Kanani Atsuko Johnson.

    Each session will begin with a brief lecture about Hula followed by the dance instruction. The two sessions will feature the same opening lecture, but  two different dances. Please join us in both sessions to learn 2 dances.

    These classes will be a fun way to get good exercise and learn about hula. There is no experience necessary to participate in this class, but if you own any hula dancing clothes (pareo/sarong), please wear it!

    We are looking forward to seeing you there!

    This event is free to join, but we greatly appreciate your donation.

    To register for the session on May 18th also, please click here.
