Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced student, a kāne or wahine, Ha’a Hula will help you develop as a dancer and take your hula journey to the next level. As you engage the practices of hula, our hope is that you will cultivate a deeper appreciation for Hawaiian cultural traditions and find inspiration in your everyday life through applying what you learn.

Our classes impart the skills of hula with an appreciation for the cultural values of Hawai’i. As you learn oli (Hawaiian chant) and dances in both kahiko (ancient) and ‘auana (modern) styles, you'll become familiar with the history, legends, spirituality, language, and land of Hawaiʻi.

Founded in 2021 by Kumu Andrea Luchese, Ha'a Hula is an online branch of Hālau Hula Ka Pi’o O Ke Anuenue, a hula school based in Ashland, Oregon, with roots on Hawai’i island. We are honored to share our love of hula with you here!

Ha’a Hula INTRO

In this free series, Kumu Andrea gently guides you through a week of short tutorials in the fundamentals of hula. A link to a new video lesson is emailed to you daily. As your lessons build throughout the week, you’ll finish with the skills you need to learn a simple hula dance.

Ha’a Hula LEGACY

Designed to support you in deepening your practice, this 10-week series is by invitation only for experienced students of hula and regular members of Ha’a Hula LIFE. Enrolls twice a year: February and October

Frequently Asked Questions

Our classes are archived in the video library so you can watch the replay any time and as often as you want. These recordings are one of the benefits of your enrollment. FOUNDATION and LEGACY class libraries expire one month after the course series ends.

After your FOUNDATION class series ends you can choose to enroll in Ha’a Hula LIFE, our ongoing, weekly interactive Zoom class. Ha’a Hula LIFE members also become eligible to enroll in our LEGACY course, a special, invitation-only series for more proficient dancers.

All payments for our FOUNDATION and LEGACY courses are final. If you enroll in Ha’a Hula LIFE, you will be able to easily cancel your membership for the next month in your account if you do not wish to continue your ongoing monthly subscription.

If you are actively learning hula from someone else, protocol dictates that you ask for permission from your teacher or kumu before learning from anyone else. Please inform us if you are coming from another hālau.
