Caregivers dance together with their keiki so that everybody learns something! Most hula are performed seated, so keiki can explore hula from the safety of a familiar lap. The 30 minute class time is just right for developing attention spans.
Meet at Magic Island. Look for a large tree near the Magic Island Lagoon
While the pandemic required us to connect through online classes, Malia took the opportunity to release a musical album just for Keiki, to connect to the magic of Hawaiian music inside and outside her class! Read her inspiration for creating this album below:
“I am so inspired by years of teaching hula to keiki, to kids! My children have been included in my hālau, my hula school, since birth, and Iʻve seen what lights them up over the years. The most poignant classes Iʻve taught have been for moms and babies in the Salvation Army recovery programs. Nurturing connections between babies and caregivers, especially in times of hardship, is so important for laying a solid foundation for keiki. If my music can help in that process, then I am so grateful!” ~ Malia Koʻiʻulaokawaolehua Helela
