Hula was created in ancient Hawaii as way to pass on stories from generation to generation.

 

Kahiko is the old or ancient form of Hula. Traditionally performed by men, this style was danced low to the ground or kneeling.

 

‘Auana is the modern style of Hula that was introduced during the reign of King Kalakaua. Performed by men, women and children - this style is more feminine but continues the tradition of story telling.

 

In Hula, we use our hands to tell our stories. Each technique learned has a history to its creation and its connection to nature.

 

Tahitian has two distinct styles. Ori- danced to drums and is either improvised or choreographed.

 

Fast paced Aparima - generally slower paced, music has lyrics and like hula is used to tell a story
