Hula: Hawaiian Culture Through Music and Dance
Laurie Soriano and Liane Torricer-Adler, instructors
“Hula is the language of the heart, therefore the heartbeat of the Hawaiian people.”
~King David Kalākaua
Hula is much more than dance steps set to music. It is a spiritual art which cannot be separated from Hawaiian language, music, beliefs, and culture. This class will share with students the aloha spirit that informs every part of Hawaiian life, with a specific focus on the music and hula traditions of the islands.
The first hour of each class will focus on playing ‘ukulele and singing, and the second hour will involve learning to dance hula. International House members are welcome to join one or both sections of the class. No prior knowledge of ‘ukulele or hula is necessary.
The class will initially run on Tuesdays only, starting Tuesday, November 13th. In the spring of 2019, the class will expand to Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Classes are open to members only and are free with a membership. To become a member of I-House Davis, please click here or call I-House at (530) 753-5007. Thank you!
