Halau 'O Kaululaua'e (HOK) is a hula school committed to maintaining the knowledge and discipline of hula that has been carefully passed down from one hula generation to the next.
HOK began with the idea that "hula is life," a simple and powerful notion that hula breathes life not just into the hula we perform but into the lives we live every day. For a hula dancer, her commitment to hula is a commitment to living her life a certain way. It's about grace, dignity, elegance, humility, respect, and compassion. In all that a dancer does, dancing or not dancing, these elements are always present.
