Aloha,

Although the current pandemic has changed the lives of the Ohana and friends of Hula Halau ‘O Makalapua, it has opened new opportunities for all of us to continue sharing the Aloha spirit.

During the pandemic, we are successfully conducting all classes online. This makes access to classes easier for those with busy schedules. If you are interested or would like more information, please email us at halau.makalapua@gmail.com or call (650) 260-HULA.

Capture the excitement and beauty of the South Pacific Islands. Learn the fundamentals of traditional and contemporary Tahitian, Hawaiian, and New Zealand Maori dance, art, music, crafts and drumming. Our 3,000 sq ft. facility will take you away to the islands with their tropical atmosphere of bamboo, palm trees, and exotic talking birds.

Hula Halau ‘O Makalapua, Marama Te Mafatu Nui offers people of all descents the opportunity to develop poise and confidence through dance, and the continuity of one’s cultural heritage through the instruction of music, arts, and crafts of the islands. Students learn confidence, self-expression, stage presence, proper execution of their dance, language, and to dance in unity with others.

We believe that if we can teach our students the "Aloha Spirit" of strong family values and spiritual guidance as well as nurture their growth, then we contribute to their tomorrow: a future bright with promise.
