hālau

(HAH-lau)

(n) Hawaiian word for a hula school.

For Example:

“The boys in my hālau are learning a new shark hula. It’s about these guys who are lost, yeah, out in the open ocean in a canoe and this shark comes and leads them back to land.” She side stepped, then ʻuwehe’d, arms out. “Real powerful.” ~ Lili, One Boy, No Water
