A few weeks ago, Ehulani Stephany, a member of our Kalani 'ohana and a hula teacher, went to Japan to teach the beautiful dance of hula. She was assisted by two former Kalani volunteers, Chie Yamazaki in Tokyo and Tomoyo Kurosawa in Iwate.
Tomoyo gathered a hundred students in Iwate, and Chie gathered 20 members of a hula halau and another twenty new students. Chie said that it wouldn't have been possible but for her Kalani experiences and connection with Kalani and said "We really appreciate Kalani and the volunteer program, and the help of the volunteer coordinators. I think this program is very wonderful."
