Over the years, our Hula & Craft Workshops have offered a wide range of classes from traditional oli to hula ʻauana to lei making, poi pounding and so much more. Participants have the opportunity to spend 2.5 hours in each workshop immersing themselves in the Hawaiian/Polynesian culture and learning from world renowned Kumu Hula and Master Artisans. See a list of our Kumu who have taught at our workshops.

Following a fun-filled day of workshops, our participants return to join the rest of the community for the Pāʻina (Hawaiian style party). Attendees enjoy an evening full of ʻono food, kanikapila music, hula, friends and liquid aloha (beer garden). We’ve heard there may be a few exceptional hula sisters and brothers coming to dance impromptu style along with a musician or two playing classic Hawaiian tunes, Kanikapila style! Wear your best Aloha attire, adorn yourself with lei and flowers (fresh if you have!), and feel free to get up to dance and join in on the festive the fun. This is one party you donʻt want to miss! See you there!
