It's the middle of December. And we are in the middle of a cold snap in California that has put parts of our country in a freezer.
But there's always a warm spot under the covers.
This Saturday, December 14th, that warm, cozy spot happens to be at Glendale High School's Performing Arts Center, where at 4 p.m. the Hula Halau Na Mamo O' Panaewa will perform their 2013 Ho'ike. Yes, in the middle of the Christmas Season, we will be witnesses to the spirit of Aloha, compliments of Kumu Hula, Keoki Wang.
If you want to learn more about the culture of Hawaii, through its dance, then take some time this Saturday afternoon and head over to Glendale. Keoki has grown his halau, dance studio from a handful of students to a dance troupe numbering well over 70 students in just a few years.
There will be retail vendors displaying unique items and products for sale which would make great Christmas gifts. Doors will be open to the public at 3:00 p.m. for holiday shoppers before the show.
The hula always tells a story. And a special story will be told about an epic battle of Hawaiian gods over the islands, as part of the fabric of Hawaiian mythical story telling. What a great way to relax before braving the cold, the crowds and the traffic.
Hula Halau Na Mamo O' Panaewa, 2013 Ho'ike, Glendale High School Performing Arts Center, 3:00 p.m., Saturday, December 14, 2013.
