Due to Covid-19 I have moved all of my classes online until the Stay Safer at Home order is released. Please see the CLASS FEE AND SCHEDULE page for more information on courses offered. New classes begin on the first of every month.
My name is Kahealani Kamahele. I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. I attended Star of the Sea School in the wai'alae district of O'ahu. Upon graduation I moved to Southern California to attend college. I have my Masters degree in Organizational Leadership from Chapman University and I am also a Certified Essential Life Coach practicing in the south bay. I am also a 4th degree black belt in Shotokan Karate and experienced as a karate instructor.
I currently teach Dance of Hawaii at Loyola Marymount University. In the past, I have taught hula at UCLA for the UCLA Hawaii Club (Hui 'o Imiloa). I have participated in various festivals over the past 12 years such as the Lotus Festival, The LA Festival, The Pacific Island Festival, Ho'olaule'a Northridge, San Diego and Alondra Park.
I started my own halau in 2007 in Rolling Hills, Ca and currently teach in Gardena and Torrance.
