PURPOSE: Under the direction of Kumu Hula Mokihana Melendez
What we learn in hula we apply to life, including our love and respect for others as well as ourselves. We are there for guidance, advice, support and comfort - not only in hula, but also in everyday life. Expression of our innermost feelings is a key factor for us. Hula is an outlet for us to show others how we feel. The most important thing that we have gained through our hula is the understanding that hula will always be there for us, no matter where our lives take us. We may not live in Hawai`i, and some of us are not even ethnically Hawaiian, but what makes us Hawaiian is the aloha that we have in our hearts and minds for the land, the people, the culture and most of all... each other.
