Aside from regularly scheduled classes, Hālau Nā Pua Lehua I Ka Ua Noe invites Instructors abroad in specialized fields, not only limited to hula, to share their knowledge of expertise from their indigenous homeland. This promotes cultural diversity, a trait that enriches our children and our communities.
Because our main focus is Hawaiian culture, we invite students from abroad and from foreign Countries to learn Hula, Hula protocol, and Mo'olelo (stories). Students will appreciate a deeper understanding how native Hawaiians lived, what makes them different from other cultures, their belief systems and their values.
Hālau Nā Pua Lehua I Ka Ua Noe participates in community events, festivals, shows, and private functions. Aside from serving our communities, the group also participates in hula competitions throughout the United States and Hawai'i.
