Our RealHula INTENSIVE is an in-depth learning experience in which the student(s) live in an attractive specially provided facility at the halau in beautiful Kailua on the windward side of the island of O'ahu.
A guest bedroom with twin beds, private bath, separate entrance and private garden offers privacy and comfort during your stay. Meals are not provided. However, the room is equipped with minimal appliances for preparing light refreshments. We are within walking distance of a grocery store as well as a variety of eating establishments.
A specified number of personal sessions are a part of each package. In addition, all regularly scheduled ongoing classes are open to our Hula Intensive guests as well. This living arrangement allows for close contact with Kumu Kea thereby providing an opportunity for non-structured sharing of knowledge and traditions.
*Airport pick-up and return is provided when requested at an additional charge- $25 One Way
Questions often asked:
1) Can I bring my husband (daughter, son, etc.) even though they won't be taking the dancing lessons?
Yes. For a spouse or other non-student occupant accompanying a hula intensive student add $50 for night. If you come with family members, you will need a rental car and will be expected to take care of your own meals.
2) Can you accommodate more than 2 guests at one time?
Sometimes we can make private sleeping arrangments if there are more than two who are traveling together. If this is needed, please let us know at time of booking, and we will do our best to accomodate you.
There are times throughout the year when Hula Intensives may NOT be available on your requested dates.
Kumu Kea serves many communities with her wisdom and traditional teachings.
We ask for your understanding and respect for her many sacred commitments.
Trust that this makes the possibility of your hula intensive an even more precious experience!

Take Your Class Home With You
We have put the material of our Hula Workshops on Video. We call them RealHula Teaching Videos.
Except for Basic Hula, we enclose a booklet containing extensive background information, detailed translations, historical and place references, choreography, costuming and footwork notes.
Our instruction is very specific and very detailed. If some of the dance steps seem to differ from what you have learned before, you should know that we teach a specific tradition of hula. Our teachers danced and taught the 'ai ha'a style of hula, characterized by a very deep knee bend.
ON-LOCATION HULA WORKSHOPS
RealHula presents Hula Workshops as part of our teaching. A Hula Workshop is typically 2 to 3 hours in length and teaches one number. Background information on the number is supplied, as well as an English translation of any Hawaiian words. Most often two Workshops are held each day. Students may sign up for either or both.
These Hula Workshops are often the basis of our teaching videos
If a video is available, it will be available at the Workshop
Pricing and Registration are handled by the sponsoring Studio and not through this website.
