For the Love of Dance Party with May Day Aerial Recital

May 4, 2024, @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm HST

Saturday, May 4, 2024
4:00 – 6:00 pm
Free

Do you LOVE to dance?!? We do!

A couple years ago, many of us Still & Moving dancers got together to dance in the parking lot for what became our Still & Moving Center landing page video (see snippets of the video here). We had SO MUCH fun we asked ourselves: “Why not do this every month?!?”

So we got together in February for a couple hours of delightful dancing.

Now the party continues!

We’ll start with a half hour May Day recital by our talented Aerialists.

Then, join our Still & Moving dance teachers and students for a fully participatory dance event. A little Tango, Modern, some Salsa Shines. Add some Hula, Nia, Bodies in Motion, perhaps Contact Improv, Afro-fusion AND MORE! The fun just keeps pouring in onto the dance floor!

Teachers will each lead us in either a warm-up, a dance to a song, a special sequence or piece of choreography. With our time at the end, we’ll all jam to great music!

Sound fun? Invite your friends and sign up here!

 

 

Kuma Hulu Malia Helela

 

Mālia is an authentic Kumu Hula: a recognized hula teacher, officially having graduated after 17 years training from her teacher, Pulu’elo Park. Fluent in Hawaiian, Kumu Mālia frequently composes her own original oli (sacred chants). Kumu Mālia has an affinity for teaching young children. For the last decade she has developed lessons specific to infants, toddlers and preschool aged keiki. She also enjoys sharing classic hula and songs with the elderly. In keeping with her tradition, she is an observant and reverent student of nature and keeper of the land – the ‘aina.

Kumu Mālia Ko’i’ulaokawaolehua Helela strives to live a life of grace. Her halau, which meets at Still & Moving Center, is Na Hula Ola Aloha. Completing her uniki under Kumu Hula Puluelo Park in 2002, she now teaches hula and oli to a wide range of students, from infants and toddlers to kupuna. Mālia studied oli (traditional Hawaiian chant) under Kumu Hula Keola Lake. She continues to look to the beauty and grace of the Hawaiian environment for grounding and inspiration.
