The Seniors of Paradise hula group began shortly after the organization was formed in 1982. In 1986 the group was disbanded and re-organized with Eve Henderson as the instructor. Eve started hula back in 1952 on the mainland and is still “Kumu” to this senior troupe.
A few years ago the group adopted the name “Pua Kea Hula” and meets twice weekly (check the Current Calendar for class schedules). The halau began with about 6 dancers and has grown until we now have over 20 active members.
The foundation of the halau is love and caring — for hula and for one another. Pua Kea learns both traditional Hawaiian and “hapa-haole” songs. Anyone 55 or over is invited to join us for hula, group support, and EXERCISE (it really is good for you).
