"We believe that all our young women are beautiful inside and out, and that they can accomplish anything that their heart’s desire."
 
 

Ka Pā Hula o Kauanoe o Wa'ahila was formed in 1991 by my grandmother, Mae Ulalia Long Loebenstein. Our hālau is named in honor of the misty rains of Wa‘ahila, where our ‘ohana has lived for the past 70 years. This hālau is based on a simple philosophy that hula is not just a dance we do once a week, but a lifestyle. The disciplines, values and ethics we teach and learn in hālau are things that our haumāna are able to use in everyday life.

"We believe that all our young women are beautiful inside and out, and that they can accomplish anything that their heart’s desire." Our focus is not on competition, but on forming and developing the total person, and in maintaining a positive attitude in all that we do. It was my grandmother’s firm belief that "dance is the showcase of your soul!"... and so, we dance!
