Conference Purpose

The International Waikiki Hula Conference offers the rare opportunity for visitors to come to Hawaii to learn, share and experience hula in the land of its birth, with a variety of respected hula masters and teachers, many of whom do not travel outside Hawaii to teach. For our local hula people, it is the chance to enrich their hula experience from many sources in one place, to meet fellow dancers and kumu hula from around the world.
