We are planning to take our 3 teenage granddaughters to Hawaii in a couple of years, (Planning ahead, of course) and would love to know if there are any resorts or studio's in Maui or Kaua'i that give Hula Lessons. They love to dance and I believe that it would be something special for them to do and a special memory to bring home. We're just looking for a fun thing for the girls to do while visiting Hawaii and naturally something to tell their friends about when we get back.

I realize there are lots of things to do In Hawaii but they would really love to get involved in Hula Dancing, for fun.

The "lessons" at the resorts are usually silly tourist activities. Do a google search for hula lessons and the name of the island and I am sure you will find a lot of real hula schools.

Denise, thanks for your reply but that's what I'm looking for. Just something at a resort that would be a fun thing for the kids to do. A resort activity which would involve a few Hula lessons. Any suggestions?

If you attend the "Old Lahaina Luau" on Maui, one of the pre luau activities is hula lessons. If you stay at the Marriott it is one of the activities offered by the resort. Contact where you will be staying and they will inform you of their activities calendar. If they don't offer lessons check with the concierge, they will know where you can go.

Honestly, I can't imagine any teenager I know wanting to participate in the Hula "lessons" they give at the resorts. It's one of those silly tourist activities that is embarrassing just to watch, much less participate in. If they are serious dancers, arrange for a real lesson at a Halau - a Hula school, where Hula is taught with great respect, as an important Hawaiian art form.

Big Island during "Merry Monarch" Hilo side, should be able to hook up with real Hula lessons. Last year we watched it on TV every night, while staying at Paniola Greens, beautiful!

You might check the state Department of Parks & Recreation. When I was growing up, they often offered Hula Lessons for locals at some of the community centers and parks in the islands. My mom took hula lessons there for many months.

Thanks Hoc: I'll definitely look into that. Were you raised on the islands? Do you know how to do the Hula? What a beautiful dance..I could watch them all day.
