Hula is not just dancing and chanting. There is a deeper spiritual aspect which must be learned and felt by each haumana (student). Hula started as a religious ceremony to the Hawaiian gods. Now people dance to remember the history of Hawaii and to join the Hawaiian way of celebrating life. Hula Halau 'O Pi'ilani's philosophy of "No Ke Aloha No Ka Hula" means "for the the love of the hula" and embodies the elements of respect, courtesy, discipline, patience, determination, and perseverance. Kumu Kanani Densing and Halau 'O Pi'ilani present this hula production to celebrate this philosophy.
