For those of you who have been following along here at Organized 31 since last year, you know that my oldest daughter just attended a hula competition in Florida. Before I share the good news (I’m a proud mama) with you and lots of beautiful pictures, let me share a little background information.
The halau worked hard raising the funds for costumes, expenses and travel to competition. The dancers practiced for almost a year in preparation for competition.
And… it was so worth it!
The halau competed in:
‘Opio (youth) Kahiko (ancient) Hula
‘Opio (youth) ‘Auana (modern) Hula
Makua (adult) ‘Auana (modern) Hula
Kapuna (elder) ‘Auana (modern) Hula
Keiki (child) Solo
‘Opio (teen) Solo
Makua (adult) Kahiko (ancient) Solo
Makua (adult) ‘Auana (modern) Solo
Kapuma (elder) Solo
‘Opio (youth) Oli (chant) Solo
My daughter and her hula sisters competed and won 1st Place in ‘Opio (youth) Kahiko (ancient) Hula.

Congrats to your daughter and her hula team! I’ve never been to a hula competition..I bet it was fun!
Thank you. If you ever get a chance, so watch a hula competition. It was so exciting, beautiful, inspirational, fun and exciting (did I say exciting twice?) 😉
Congrats! I spent 3 months in Hawaii in college and really enjoyed watching the hula dancers. The dances are beautiful and so is the music that accompanies them. I know you are so proud! 🙂
What fun! Congrats to your daughter!
Congratulations to your daughter!!This is all new to me and it seems fantastic
The hard work and determination paid off! Way to go!!
