Kumu Māhealani Uchiyama and Hālau Ka Ua Tuahine will return to the Kū Mai Ka Hula Competition on September 10th.
The hālau made its first appearance there in 2015 showcasing its Kūpuna dancers. They presented the hula I Aloha ʻIa Nō ʻO Kanaio, and were awarded 2nd Place.
This year, the Kūpuna will return along with Wahine dancers. They have been in rehearsal all Summer and are looking forward to being on Maui again!
We are delighted and honored to again be working with renowned Hawaiian musician Sheldon Brown and Kaiolohia Smith.
Featuring award-winning hālau from Hawai‘i and California competing in solo and group performances. Male and female dancers perform both kahiko (traditional) and ‘auana (modern) hula stylings.
This year’s judges are renowned and prestigious kumu hula: Keali’i Reichel, Ulalia Woodside, Maka Herrod, and Kekuhi Keali’ikanaka’ole.
Expect to see hālau competing in a level of performance as in more well-known competitions, yet this event takes place in our own comfortable, professional, and beautiful venue of Castle Theater, right here on Maui!
