Too bad I'm from Florida and on a shoestring budget. It would have been great to attend! I hope someone from here can go and tell us all how it went.

What halau or group do you belong to? There are several FL groups that have received information regarding this workshop, so maybe you cold "fundraise" together and attend. My halau fundraises every year and seldom does anyone have to pay out of pocket. Puffin pastries are excellent money makers. Goodluck. This is an excellent opportunity to learn from some of the world's finest choreographers and Kumu Hula.

It's rough for me right now, but I am going to do whatever it takes to get there. :)

If I go, I will take some pics and post here.

^Yay! Can't wait to see pics.

Punahele, I've only just begun a little halau in this part of Florida. (I never post where so no one knows exactly where I live, but I would tell you if you PM me.) My kumu lives in Hawaii and told me start teaching here. Since I'm alakai and came here and was practicing alone and wanted to attain olapa part of what I have to do, for her requirements to me, is start a group here and teach so I'm slowly growing a new halau from the ground up. So far it is only a 'family halau'. Everyone in it is either a relative via blood or marriage. I have only just attained one non-relative student (YAY!). I start the keiki group in January of teaching 3-5 girls free so I can advertise the halau on the childrens side of things.

If I had enough info in advance I can probably attend a workshop in 2011. I always like to find ways to improve my teaching!

I wrote an email asking for more information such as price and where it will be held but I didn't get a response. Does anyone have this info they could give me?
