Enchant yourself with lovely hula dancers, as they sway their hips and the graceful movement of their hands invite you to explore the enchanted, enticing delights of the islands. Under the direction of Keito St. James, the group has toured the United States, awakening its audiences to tantalizing rhythms of the native drums and exciting dances of Hawaii. Hula Halua Ka'epa has entertained corporations and private parties throughout the U.S. for the past decade. 

In Hawaiian, Hula Halau Ka'epa means dance (hula), school (halau) and the edge of a new beginning (Ka’epa). Our mission is to educate the community on indigenous cultures by creating colorful and memorable venues of authentic performing arts presentations, and to encourage greater appreciation of the ethnic culture through dance, heritage, language, music, storytelling and art.

Aloha! Hula Halau Ka'epa is a power-packed Polynesian dance spectacular featuring beautiful exotic island dancers who sway their hips to the rhythmic call of Live drums. The native girls are arrayed in full colorful costume as they step with fascinating undulating control.
