Although the 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 around the world!

We are successfully conducting all classes both in person and online making access to classes easier for those with busy schedules. If you are interested or would like more information, please email us at 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 3,600 sq ft. facility will take you away to the islands with the atmosphere of bamboo walls, palm trees and live talking birds.

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

It is our hope that everyone participating in our classes will achieve the best they can for themselves and not feel compared to others.  We believe that if our students experience the "Aloha Spirit" of love, kindness and patience, they in turn will share that with others.
