“Hula is the language of the heart,
therefore the heartbeat of the people”

– King David Kalākaua

A Message From Kumu Derek Nu’uhiwa


Mahalo nui loa for dropping by and visiting us!

I am honored to be the Kumu of this humble and blessed Hula ‘Ohana here on the westside of O’ahu in Wai’anae.

Our students represent all age groups from all walks of life and come from all over the island to get their Hula on weekly.

We truly enjoy learning and perpetuating our Hawaiian culture, language and dance form; but mostly we enjoy sharing it to all whom we are blessed to cross paths with.

We cordially invite you to surf around our site to get to know us a little more and should you feel your heart strings being pulled, then just take the leap and come Hula with us! We are waiting for you with open arms…

Huuuuiiii! Come Hula With Us...
