Baby Hula Cultural Immersion with Kumu Mālia Helelā
July 1, 2022, @ 10:30 am - 11:00 am HST
July 1, 2022
10:30-11:00 am (HST)
We believe that the littlest keiki can dance hula and have welcomed dancers as young as two weeks old!
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.
Check confirmation emails for location details- activity will be led at either Ala Moana Beach Park, under the shade of a tree by the beach OR from one Still & Moving Center’s beautifully appointed studios.
1-Jul-2022 location: Meet at Kakaako Waterfront Park at a nice flat area with trees behind the Children’s Discovery Center. Good parking at the ocean end of Cooke St.
Kumu Malia Helela
Kumu Mālia Ko’i’ulaokawaolehua Helelā strives to live a life of grace. Her halau (hula school), which meets at Still & Moving Center, is Na Hula Ola Aloha. Completing her uniki (graduation) under Kumu Hula Puluelo Park in 2002, she now teaches hula and oli (traditional Hawaiian chant) to a wide range of students, from infants and toddlers to kupuna. Mālia studied oli under Kumu Hula Keola Lake. She began her formal training in lomilomi massage as a teenager. She was licensed by the State of Hawaii as a massage therapist in 1998 and as an esthetician in 2002. Her hula practice and lomilomi practice, she says, are the same. She continues to look to the beauty and grace of the Hawaiian environment for grounding and inspiration. Mālia has become a respected and beloved cultural practitioner in Hawaii.
