Aloha

Me, Kirsten, Kehau and up front - Jayla.

So, I think July or August it will have been a year since my neighbors and I started taking hula lessons from the fabulous Kehau. Hula is one of the dance forms I want to cross off my life list. (I still need to cross off belly dancing and pole and maybe add hip hop and contemp) I have never ever performed hula in public. My kids and hubby haven't even seen me do it. So when Kehaux mentioned in class last night that she was performing at the Senior Center and invited anyone to go... the gals said I should go...even though I have two little ones.

Katherine told me to just bring a towel or blanket for them to sit on ...and it was brilliant. Debbie's daughter Jayla was there ...and she is fantastic with kids. Most of the other Hula ladies had work so... it was just a small group. I'm the least experienced of the bunch. It was fun. I was so nervous last night and this morning...and there was one part I could see my hands shaking...

Me and my future hula girls.

What I loved most was feeling the music. Kehaux teaches us the words, meanings and emotion of the songs and movements. It's fun to be lost in dance. Dance... truly makes me happy.

ps. I had one of the senior citzen ladies take the picture of our group with my iphone... that's why it's a little bit blurry. I think I'll blame that for how white I look.
