Aloha, my name is Malulani. Welcome to my page!

I started dancing hula, tahitian, and other Polynesian dances as a child and have been teaching group and private lessons on and off for over 15 years. While hula and dancing are not my day job, dancing and sharing the Hawaiian culture are my passion.

I’m new to online lessons and Patreon so I look forward to meeting my future patrons and finding the content they and maybe you are looking for! Whether you’re brand new and looking to get started, are well versed and looking for someone to practice along with, new choreography, looking for a fun new way to workout or anything in-between, this is the place for you.

By becoming my patron you help perpetuate the Hawaiian culture and support the creation of the videos and choreography.
Thank you for dropping by.

Tiers
Sneak Peek
$1 or more per month
This tier is meant for those who want to dabble with a few demo videos, get a sneak peek into some of the topics, or are just looking to support this page but aren't ready to take on the lessons.


  • Access to all Patreon only posts and events
  • Preview into course content
Basic
$5 or more per month
This tier is best for beginners looking to get their feet wet. 


- Basic steps for all levels. If you're brand new to dancing in general there are videos to help you get started and eventually build upon each skill you learn till you're doing all the basics correctly.

- Some very basic songs. These songs will generally be most appropriate for children but anyone of any age can dance them.

- Occasional bonus content, like new drill and practice videos.


-CANNOT USE CHOREOGRAPHY FOR PROFIT without written permission. You CAN use in any not for profit performance without permission.

Standard
$12 or more per month
In this tier you have access to all content available in the basic tier as well as intermediate and advanced level songs.


-Basic, intermediate & advanced songs with step-by-step instructions.

-Drills & practice videos.


**If you are brand new to dancing and want to see what this is all about, I recommend starting with the basic tier. Once you're comfortable with the basics you can upgrade to this tier.

**If you are an experienced dancer (particularly hip based dances, not so much ballet) but new to hula, you can probably begin in this tier. If you're unsure, start with the basic tier and upgrade when ready.


-CANNOT USE CHOREOGRAPHY FOR PROFIT without written permission. You CAN use in any not for profit performance without permission.

Premium
$85 or more per month
In this tier, you have access to all available content. As well as  optional monthly personalized feedback to help you improve or work through issues or blocks you may have. 


-One time song request. You can send in a song you would like choreographed. (*Cannot guarantee I'll be able to fulfill all song requests. I will work with you to find a song you want, that can be done. *Time to choreograph will vary but will be done within 3 weeks. Unless there are extraneous circumstances.)

-Once monthly choice of either:

  -a) Personal video feedback review of a video you send

  -b) A 30min one-on-one video session


**For those who are serious about learning, I highly recommend this tier. While I always suggest following along in a mirror, you're here because you want to learn, so you don't always know where your making mistakes. Or maybe you do and just don't know what to do about it. Practicing wrong can be more damaging and difficult to fix than not practicing at all. While I recommend this tier, unfortunately my day job greatly restricts the number of patrons I can accommodate at this level at this time.
