|Hui Hula o na Pu'u i ka Noe ("Hula group of the hills in the mist") is a Polynesian cultural dance group established in 1988 by our kumu ("teacher"), Kalena Gregory. Our haumana ("dance group") is made up of keiki and adult dancers, whom dance regularly at the Aloha Festival at the Presidio in San Francisco, other ethnic festivals, parties, and lu'aus. Our repertoire is concentrated mainly around Hawaiian hula (kahiko & 'auana), though we learn and perform dances from Tahitian ('ote'a & 'aparima), Maori, Samoan & other Pacific Islands as well.
Although we aren't necessarily a competitive group, in 2009 we traveled to Berlin to compete in an all-Polynesian competition; the group won 1st prize in the soloist category, 3rd place in kahiko and 1st place in 'auana. We also performed in Prague the same year. In 2013, the group performed in a folk fiesta in Nysa, Poland and a folk dance festival in Pisek, the Czech Republic. In October 2014, the dancers participated in the biennial Shanghai Fitness Fold Dance Festival; they won 1st prize in the originality category.
