Hula on Maui
Hula is a uniquely Hawaiian dance accompanied by chant or song that preserves and perpetuates the stories, traditions and culture of Hawaii.
You can see authentic hula throughout Maui at seasonal events and live performances at hotels and resorts. A luau is another fun and festive place to watch the hula and learn about Hawaiian and Polynesian culture. Fantastic luau venues can be found throughout Maui like the Old Lahaina Luau, the Drums of the Pacific in the Hyatt Regency Maui and the Kaanapali Beach Hotel Hula Show, to name a few.
Hula is traditionally taught by a kumu hula (hula teacher) in a hula halau (hula school) but visitors can get free lessons at select Maui hotels and resorts. If you’re brave enough, some luau performances even let you take to the stage to show off your new hula skills.
