Halau Ho'omau I ka Wai Ola O Hawai i

6130 Old Telegraph Road, , , 22310
Halau Ho'omau I ka Wai Ola O Hawai'i, meaning “through hula and halau, we remain young at heart and full of life,” is a traditional Hawaiian cultural school organized by Suz and Manu Ikaika. The Halau, established in January 2000, is based at Hope United Church in Alexandria, Virginia. It is the successor to Halau Hula Mahina O Wakinekona DC that was organized in 1985 at the same location ~ thus Hope Church has been a center of Hawaiian activities and interests for over 25 years. Classes are open to men, women, and children from the age of 6 years. Students of diverse backgrounds who reside in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington DC attend classes. In class, all music and chants are performed live by Halau musicians ~ no CDs or recordings are used. Oli (hula chants); hula olapa and hula kui (ancient hula); hula auana (free-flowing modern hula in the traditional style); Hawaiian arts and crafts, history, language, and music (ukulele and ancient hula implements) classes are offered to perpetuate all aspects of Hawaiian culture and to educate the local community about Hawaii and its people. Our primary goal is to keep Hawaiian heritage alive by celebrating the traditions of our native Hawaii.
