The history of hula begins in the legend of the fire goddess Pele. Keeping this in mind it is important to present these dances in a hula program. We also perform dances to other Hawaiian Gods & Goddesses as well as dances to the chiefs, land & sea. The hula ku`i joins the old with the new incorporating some of the ancient hula instruments with modern music. We perform dances from all eras through to the twenty-first century (new compositions) including hula auana (modern) and Hapa-Ha'ole (english words to Hawaiian tunes).
