Kumu Kea's wisdom teachings
I receive many questions and requests from our customers, and it is my pleasure to respond as fully as possible to each one of them. The thought occurred to me that there are others out there who might have similar questions, and these folks might benefit from the answers that I have heretofore been delivering one-on-one. This series is a result of that thought. Those questions that I feel might be of general interest to our hula dancing friends, I will answer in this forum. So if you missed any of my past articles from Kumu's Korner, here they are.~ Kumu Kea~
