LIHUE — Dancers ranging from keiki — children as young as 3 years old — to makua — hula parents, 53 years and older — will grace the stage at the Kauai Marriott Resort and Beach Club ballroom Saturday, as Na Hula O Kaohikukapulani presents its annual Holiday Hula Celebration 2015.
Under the direction of Kumu Hula Kapu Kinimaka-Alquiza, the dancers and musicians offer the spirit of the holidays through a variety of dance and musical presentations ranging from kahiko, or traditional style, to auana, or contemporary styling.
Doors open at 5 p.m. and the show will start at 6 p.m. There will be a silent auction and baked goods and finger food sale. Proceeds will benefit the Kamanawa Foundation, an educational nonprofit cultural organization whose mission is to perpetuate and preserve the Hawaiian culture through language, music, dance, crafts and more.
The winner of the Kalapaki Getaway will be announced during the evening. Kinimaka-Alquiza, who recently returned from a tour in Japan, said the Kalapaki Getaway includes a weekend stay at the Kauai Marriott with admission to the prime rib/seafood buffet.
Tickets are available through halau members, or at the door.
Holiday Hula 2015 benefits Na Hula O Kaohikukapulani, which offers classes in Lihue and the Westside, and the Kamanawa Foundation.
