HULA

 
What kind of Polynesian dancing do you teach?
 
I teach authentic Polynesian dance classes. This means that my classes and performances offer an authentic cultural experience. You will learn correct protocol, the language of the islands, and different styles of hula and Tahitian dance techniques, including hula kahiko, hula auana, ahuroa, aparima, and otea.
 
What do I need to bring with me?
 
For my Polynesian dance students, please bring a water bottle and please do not wear jeans, socks, or shoes when we dance. You may wear your own pareo or pa'u to class if you choose to, but we have plenty for classroom use.
 
 
SEWING

Do you do custom tailoring or alterations?

Sorry, we provide lessons, demonstrations, special events, and some kits. We do not do custom tailoring or alterations. We can teach you how to sew and quilt or if you prefer I could give you a referral to a good tailor in our area.
 
** I teach classes via the Newport News Department of Parks, Recreation, and Tourism..   For their website, please click here . For registration and more information, please call 926.1400.
 
 
For sewing classes, do I need to bring my own sewing machine?
 
No, but please bring it if you have one that works and if you want to learn how to use it. Please also bring your manual with you. Otherwise, I will be glad to let you use one of our's for classroom use.
 
It is nice to have access to a sewing machine when you have sewing "homework" to complete and you will get to know your machine. However, owning one is not necessary.
.
What do I need to bring with me?
 
For my sewing students, you will be provided with a sewing supplies list to complete your project. Normally, you must provide and bring your own fabric, patterns, and notions. The Studio will provide general sewing tools for classroom use only, such as scissors, tape, etc.
