Experience a kinetic introduction to Hula, the indigenous dance of Hawai'i, with Bay Area Hula artist, Māhea Uchiyama. This ancient, healing art form uses the body to perpetuate knowledge of the ancestors and appreciate nature. The class leads into the afternoon performance by Hālau O Kekuhi, an honored troupe of Hilo from Hawaii's Big Island that specializes in the vigorous ‘aiha‘a style of hula and chant, handed down from woman to woman for more than eight generations of the Kanaka’ole family. $10, purchase tickets at calperformances.org
