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.
