Tonight we take a step back into the realms of traditional dance. Kumu Hula (hula instructors) are challenged to present chants and dances that stay true to the era. Foot gestures and hand movements must match the time period and style of dance true to the traditions passed down from their Hula Lineage.
Our MANAOLA ‘Ohana sends all the best wishes to every Hālau participating in tonight’s competition as they have all worked tirelessley to share their love for the dance, and present their best interpretation of ancient Mele (Chants). May all the kinolau of the forest inspire and protect you this evening as you dance into time and space e ola! #manaolahawaii#manaola#manaolainhilo2018#melemanaka#kahikonight#manaolaspiritweek#leiday#merriemonarch#hula
