Each month, join us on the Julianne and George Argyros Plaza to learn a new style of dance taught by a local expert instructor. Tuesday Night Dance is a fun and upbeat program designed for all ages and abilities — all are welcome and no dance experience required, so come try something new!
May's classes are all about hula! Instructor Toni Kemehana Pasion returns to the Plaza to share her knowledge on this island-based art form and new dances that will keep you coming back for more.
