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. The songs that you will learn to dance to will be Tsuki no Yo wa (May 28th) and Pearly Shells. (June 11th)
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.
