MOM & ME- KEIKI HULA

All Skill Levels, Ages 3-12 
Experts agree that dancing is a wonderful activity for children of all ages. Not only is it an excellent form of exercise, but it also teaches grace, coordination, rhythm, self-confidence, self-expression and it expands the mind by learning another culture. Hula classes for Keiki (children) age 3 and up.  30 minute classes are geared for beginners and younger students. Students between the age of 3 to 9, must have their mothers dance with them.  Hula is handed down by the family and having a mother is comforting to a child.  Students 10 to 12 must be able to participate in the class by themselves. Basic hula steps and hand motions are taught separately, using Hawaiian language words, games and chants to focus and practice. Hawaiian stories and sometimes crafts are incorporated to learn about the Hawaiian culture. Parents are encouraged to join in so they can help perfect their daughter’s dance when they practice!
