What should I bring to my first class?

  • Wear a comfortable t-shirt and leggings/athletic shorts. 

  • Bring a pāʻū (skirt) or pareo (sarong) if you have one. If you do not own a pāʻū or pareo, we will provide loaners until you are able to purchase one.

  • Bring a bottle of water, hand towel, and baby wipes (as we dance barefoot).

What is the cost of monthly tuition?

Please contact us directly for tuition rates. Discounts will apply for additional family members living in the same household. There is a one-time family registration fee of $25. 

Drop-in classes are not available.

Do you offer private classes?

Yes, we offer private one-on-one instruction at hourly or half-hour allotted time slots.

What if Iʻm an experienced dancer?

Every school/hālau has a unique style and traditions. Hula Foundations is required for all new students to become accustomed to KHOI. As an experienced dancer you may progress more quickly and placed in a class sooner.
