Am I excited, YES! On way out to some snow and chill for my spring break this week to Boston. Will be teaching grades K-3rd graders simple ukulele instruction, along with some "noho hula" for the kids. A little history on some hula instruments and how to implement them in a hula auana dance. Monday thru Thursday will be workshop time, after which a little luau show to be held for parents/staff and community as we share our learned ukulele songs and dances. Party time with hula hoops and games after show, then off to Martha's Vineyard with Aunty Marilyn, Aunty Ruth for some kanikapila jams with awesome ukulele lovers on the island. These Auntys #rock,  it will be my second time to Boston in 6 months to perform and share my passion for the ukulele. Mahalo for the honor, many thanks to Karin Puffer and Westborough School District. Big kine hugs to Kumu Hula Shawna Alapa'i, Felila Ako for their mana'o and support.
Aloha lives~on the East Coast Islands too.
