You can see hula on Kauai at seasonal festivals, events, competitions, live performances and luau (although the latter often mixes traditional Hawaiian dances with those of other Polynesian cultures). Hula is taught by a kumu hula (hula teacher) in a halau hula (hula school), but visitors can take free hula lessons offered at various locations around Kauai, including some hotels and resorts.
Kauai has many fantastic luau venues where you can watch hula performances and learn more about Polynesian and Hawaiian cultures, including the Grand Hyatt Kauai Luau at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa on the South Shore. Or check out the Smith Family Garden Luau in Kapaa and the Luau Kalamaku in the historic Kilohana Plantation.
