Current News from Kaleo
What a busy summer this has been. It began with the hula classes starting in Spartanburg SC in June. What a wonderful group of women in the class, and Georgia, the owner of Bella Dance Studios, is also wonderful to work with. I will be in Spartanburg with some of my dance troupe from NC as well as my students from class there on August 15 for an event on Main Street that will also be the official open house for Georgia's new dance space. It will be from 1:00pm to 6:00pm for anyone in the Spartanburg area. I will post the exact time when we will be doing some hula as soon as Georgia gets the scheduled confirmed. And if you know of anyone in the Spartanbug area who would like to learn hula, have them get in touch with me.
The Heart of Aloha Dance troupe also had two events in July. The first was a big Hawaiian Luau beach party at Lake Lure NC. It was sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce there and they had an amazing turnout, with everyone dressed Hawaiian. We also had about 30 people doing the group participation part of the show with us. It was a high energy evening! And then the following Sunday several of us were at the Pet Fest Benefit event at the Asheville Outlet Mall here in Asheville. With how so much of the Aloha Spirit is about how we are all interconnected, it was wonderful to be there to support those little ones that are such wonderful members of our family. And several of them found new homes during the event.
Now I am gearing up for the fall. It will be starting with an open house/potluck and ho'ike at our new space in Asheville at the Town and Mountain Activity Center on Asheland and McDowell the end of August. Will have the dates, times and details up on the site in the next couple of days. Also will be offering an ongoing chant class, a free teleconference call twice a month as well as other workshops and classes. I will also be starting a monthly meetup group for those of us here in WNC who have a connection to Hawai'i to be able to get together for some "talk story" about our experiences and such. All of this will be up on the events page shortly.
So, check back soon for all the details on my events page.
