Hula on Oahu

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 hula throughout Oahu at live performances at hotels and resorts and seasonal festivals and competitions like the King Kamehameha Hula Competition (June), the Prince Lot Hula Festival (July) and the World Invitational Hula Festival (November). The Kuhio Beach Hula Show by Hawaii’s finest halau hula (hula school) and Hawaiian performers is held every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday (weather-permitting) from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm (6 pm to 7 pm Nov.–Jan.) at the Kuhio Beach Hula mound on Kalakaua Avenue. This is a free event to the public!

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 Oahu including the Alii Luau at the Polynesian Cultural Center on the North Shore, the Paradise Cove Luau in the Ko Olina area of the Leeward Side of Oahu, and the Royal Luau at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, one of many luau events in Waikiki.

Hula is taught by a kumu hula (hula teacher) in a halau hula but visitors can get free lessons at select Oahu hotels and resorts and places like the Royal Hawaiian Center.
