Living Life in Harmony through the Hawaiian Way of the Heart 
Hawaiian Hula in North and South Carolina

The goal of Halau Pu'uwai O Aloha is to educate the general public by learning about the Hawaiian people and their traditional customs, values and protocols. Besides having regularly scheduled classes, we strive to help perpetuate the rich culture of the Hawaiian people through educational workshops, performances and other cultural events.

Our primary focus is hula kahiko (ancient dance), and hula awana (modern dance) which includes oli (chant), mele (traditional songs), himeni (modern songs), nā mea hula (arts, crafts, implements), lole hula (hula attire), ‘ōlelo (language), and mo’olelo (stories). We hope to reach people far and wide, touching people who may not be exposed to the Hawaiian culture and share with them the spirit of aloha. Visit www.theheartofaloha.org/calendar page to find any upcoming performances, workshops, or other events.
