Weekly/drop-in classes are offered in two different formats depending upon your interests and time available to commit. Our Hawaiian Hula Drills and Technique class focuses on the physical aspect of hula and includes footwork and hand movements in a format to increase endurance, provide a good cardio workout, drill technique and helps you to sweat out what needs to be released. Every dancer is encouraged to attend these classes to continue working on technique alone. These classes are open to women ages 18+ and with any level of dance experience or none. Each class consists of 60 minutes of hula technique and stretching. Each class is limited to 6 students.
The Hawaiian Hula Drills and Technique classes are offered in person in:
Morehead City, NC
Cedar Point, NC
New Bern, NC
Cost $30/month (one class a week, total of 4 classes)
Drop ins are allowed only if space is available. Drop in rate: $10
If you find yourself really enjoying hula from the physical aspect of moving you might be interested in the monthly series classes that are 1.5 hours a week and include learning choreographies along with spiritual practices. After three months of dancing in the drill or monthly classes, you might be interested in joining the Avalon Aloha Hula school to learn more about the cultural and spiritual aspects of hula.
We also offer a monthly series in which you are still learning technique, but you also begin to learn beginner hapa-haole hula numbers. The Monthly Adult Hula Level I series builds upon itself over the month so no drop ins are allowed. The classes are 90 minutes in length and include: a warm-up, 30 minutes of low impact cardio, 20 minutes of learning a choreography verse, and ends with a cool down/stretching segment followed by a meditation (like shavasana with yoga) or spiritual discussion. You'll learn one choreography a month. Each series is limited to 6 students. These classes are open to women ages 18+ and with any level of dance experience or none.

Cost $45/month (one class a week, total of 4 classes with each class 1.5 hours). Drop ins are not allowed since choreographies are a focus.
After three months of dancing in the drill or monthly classes, you might be interested in joining the Avalon Aloha Hula school to learn more about the culture and spiritual aspect of hula along with kahiko (traditional) hulas and 'auana (modern) hulas.
Take Care of Yourself: Hula, although a low impact dance form can sometimes make high demands on your feet, ankles, knees, hips, lower back, and sense of balance. Please ask your doctor about the advisability of dancing Hula if you have any problems in any areas before beginning hula.
