Complimentary Cultural Programming

Hula

Time
10:00—11:00am
Location
The Royal Grove
Hula is the art of Hawaiian dance. It expresses all that we hear, see, smell, taste, touch and feel. Hula is life. The late kumu hula - dance master - Maiki Aiu Lake's philosophy expresses the depths of this Hawaiian art form. Puake'ala Mann, a kumu hula graduate of Hälau Hula o Maiki, shares basic hand gestures, footwork and body movements that accentuate mele - chant or song lyrics.

Lomilomi Hawaiian Massage

Time
11:00am—12:00pm
Location
Building B, Level 3
Hawaiian massage — lomilomi — is a centuries old healing practice. Pi‘ilani Wright, a certified practitioner, demonstrates lomilomi basics with class participants paired up to learn and apply simple techniques. Partners then switch giving each student the opportunity to experience both giving and receiving lomilomi.

Ukulele

Time
12:00am—1:00pm
Location
Building B, Level 1 — Helumoa Hale Guest Services & Heritage Room
Learn basic chords and songs as you strum Hawai'i's best-known string instrument, introduced to the islands in the 1870s from Portugal. 25 instruments and music books are provided, but you are welcome to bring your own, or purchase one at Bob's 'Ukulele at Royal Hawaiian Center. Instructors Wainani Yim and Puake'ala Mann are seasoned performers who share favorite songs and simple chords.

Lei, strung flower garlands, are synonymous with Hawaiʽi and hoʽokipa (Hawaiian hospitality). Royal Hawaiian Center invites both kamaʽāina (locals) and malihini (guests) to fashion a lei of colorful, fragrant blossoms in the kui (sewing) style to adorn themselves during their stay, or as a gift to a loved one to celebrate a special occasion. Classes are limited to the first 25 persons, ages 7 and older.
