Halau Ku Pono I Kamalani, a local hula school in Davis County, will share their talent on stage. Join them as they tell stories of olden times through their Kahiko (traditional) hula dancing. As time progressed, hula evolved into the ‘auana (modern) style of hula dancing. The halau will transition from traditional dance into the modern style of hula many share today. From our young children to our adult-age dancers, we invite you to come and experience a touch of Hawaii in Utah.
About Halau Ku Pono I Kamalani:
We are Halau Ku Pono I Kamalani. I am Kumu hula (hula teacher) Kahealani Ohumukini Blackmon. I found my way to a stage at the young age of 18 months old and never wanted to leave the lights and the music. I have been dancing since that day.
My Kumu (teacher), Keola Ohumukini had me teaching keiki (children) at the age of 11. I knew from a young age I wanted to perpetuate the culture and share the knowledge of my Native Hawaiian culture with anyone wanting to learn. In 2008, Halau Ku Pono I Kamalani began teaching hula and other Pacific Island cultures in Davis County, UT. Our group has children from age 5 to adult. We have performed throughout Utah and competed in several hula competitions in the United States. We believe in perpetuating the Native Hawaiian and Pacific Island cultures through sharing knowledge. We accomplish doing so through the dances we perform. We want the world to see the cultures through our eyes.
We look forward to bringing a touch of paradise to you!
