Thank you for visit kauanoeshulastudio.com. My name is Kauanoeanuhea, Hula instractor of kauanoeshulastudio.com. My mission is share true Hwaiian culture such as Hula, History, Hawaiian way of thinking and Hawaiian Language. You don’t need to worry about your body at all. You don’t need to be flexible as Ballet Dancer. You can still dance beautiful Hula!
I learned Hula under Kumu Pattye about 16 years, and still training to be a Kumu Hula. My intention to teach Hula is let everybody know what is a Real Hula, and how fun to dance Hula. What I teach is all I carried from Kumu Pattye and that tradition was carried over 100 years. Hula is the dance gives women a real beauty, and releases your heart. You’ll find yourself through Hula.
Please come join us to enjoy Hula!
[Pattye Kealohalani Wright]
I received approval as Hula instractor from my Kumu Hula Pattye Kealohalani Wright. Kumu Pattye is the person who has Hula Halau “Na Pua Kea O Koʻolau Poko” in Kailua Oahu. Kumu pattye is a traditional Kumu Hula. This means she carries a hula lineage which is passed on to her students. Her kahiko (traditional style dance) teacher was Aunt Lani Kalama, also of Kailua.
Aunty Lani’s teacher was the well-known Lokalia Montgomery known as the “teacher of teachers”. Kumu Pattye’s ‘auana (modern style dance) teacher was Bella Richards of Kailua, O’ahu. Aunt Bella came from the Hilo tradition of ‘ai ha’a style dancing, characterized by a very deep bend of the knees. Our instruction is very specific and detailed.
