Angelina Pedroso Center (Room B 159)

Lanialoha is a Native Hawaiian born and raised in the Chicago area and third generation descendant of the first Polynesians who migrated to the Midwest. Her grandmother, understanding the dearth of Pacific Island cultural and musical resources available in the Midwest, left Hawaii and came to live with her family in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, to ensure the knowledge of our culture, hula, and music was not lost in our generation. 

Haki Kino is a hula practice exercise for:

  • Establishing uniform hula basics and technique
  • Natural movement development

This is an entry to the intermediate level hula program.

Please dress in loose clothing for movement!
