Keola’s Hula Halau


Keola’s Hula Halau is under the direction of Harrilyn Keali’iheleaupuni Range Aiwohi, Charman Keola Aiwohi Sr., and their daughter, Kumu Hula Deslynn Kaliliokalani Aiwohi Carter.  Born and raised on the island of Oahu, Hawai’i, Keali’i and Kalili began their hula training with Na Kumu Hula Louise & Luka Kalei’iki from Ilima Hula Studio in Honolulu.


When they moved to Texas in 1982, they continued their hula with Kumu Frank Keli’i Chang, Uncle Richard Peters, the Jus’ Hawaiians and the Hawaiian Islanders Polynesian Revue.  In 2003, the decision was made to open a hula school in the city of Dallas.

Along with Kumu Kaliliokalani’s four sons, who also dance and sing with the halau, the Aiwohi and Carter ohana are a close knit family and Keola’s Hula Halau is a product of their love of their ‘aina and their culture.  Come and share the aloha with us!

Mahalo nui loa!
