Muolaulani is a contemporary Hawaiian dance company showcasing hula at its highest art form. They are noted for their innovative presentations. Artistic Director and Kumu Hula Michael Pili Pang brings to the stage Hawaiian rituals, myths, and legends with a contemporary flair, to tell the stories of Hawai’i and its rich culture. Muolaulani performers have been trained through the dance school Halau Hula No’eau in the style called hula ku’i – a descriptive dance style which blends traditional hula with western idioms.
