Inspired by the motto, “Ke kukui nānā i luna” (The light looked up to), AHA’s mission is inspire greatness and to sustain the vitality of the Hawaiian culture — past, present, and future.
The Academy of Hawaiian Arts (AHA) is led by renowned kumu hula (hula instructor) Mark Keali’i Ho’omalu who is known for his innovative and, at times, aggressive style of hula. The Academy pays homage to the origins of Hawaiian traditions while advancing new expressions of Hawaiian dance, music, and language.
Kumu Hula Mark Keali’i Ho’omalu teaches the essence of Hawaiian history and customs through choreography of hula and mele (chants in the Hawaiian language). He founded the Academy of Hawaiian Arts in 2003, and his fresh approach to hula has made the group’s name famous in the Hawaiian arts and dance community.
