Our Story


Ke 'Ano Aloha started in February 2022.  The Founder Kumu Kawena Mann, a native born Hawaiian, a hula student and a kumu hula with over 40 years of hula experience desired to create a special hula event that fully embraces the spirit of aloha.  Aloha that permeates  throughout the planning; throughout the interaction between planning committee members and participants; judges; and throughout all planned events, which includes: dinner show, workshops, and competition/exhibition.  


The results of our first 2022

Ke 'Ano Aloha were very satisfying with 100 people attending our dinner show at the Kamakura Prince Hotel;  over 100 combined students joining both Kumu Kawaikapuokalani Hewett and Kumu Chinky Mahoe workshops and  17 hula halau participating at competition/exhibition.


In  2023, we hope to further perpetuate this value of ALOHA as we continue to improve

Ke 'Ano Aloha  for you.

​Aloha Kawena
