About Hālau Hula O Makalani Nā Pilialoha

We are blessed to have two locations!  Our hālaus are located in Vista (North County), as well as Chula Vista (South County), in the heart of beautiful San Diego,  which allows us to spread our aloha to both Northern and Southern California.  Classes are taught by our beloved Kumu Hula, Makalani Kuliha'apai.

She teaches both Kahiko (Ancient) and 'Auana (Modern) styles of Hawaiian dance. At our hālau, the haumāna (students) will not only learn the Hawaiian culture, they will also learn the importance of "Hula Protocol”,  the history and mana'o behind each dance, the basics of Hawaiian language through song and dance, create their own costumes and Hawaiian implements, as well as gain self-discipline and self-confidence. 

Here at Hālau Hula O Makalani Nā Pilialoha, we have a passion for the hula and perpetuating the Hawaiian culture as well as helping others discover their inner dancer. Let us  bring out the inner Hawaiian in you!  Contact us today to learn more about our hālau.
