Art of Hawaiian Dance

Halau i Ka Pono is a Hawaiian Hula School in Chicago based in Oak Park, IL.  Kumu Hula June Kaililani Tanoue established the school in 2009. 

"Hula is the art of Hawaiian dance expressing all that we see, hear, taste, touch, and feel. "  ~Maiki Aiu Lake

Halau i Ka Pono means “place to cultivate the goodness.”  Our purpose is to share indigenous Hawaiian culture and stories through the joy of dance.
