Hula in St. Louis: Must Have Monday

Hula Dancing in Missouri?  
Of Course!
   It may seem like an unlikely pair, but the Hui Hula O'Punahele Hula Halau is a professional dance company dedicated to sharing the dance and culture of the Polynesian islands.
 I know, it's not a Monday but  HHP is hosting a performance Saturday, Aug. 13th at the Shook Fine Arts Building Theater at the St. Charles Community College. Admission is FREE. The Ho'ike, (recital) will feature dances and drumming from the Polynesian islands of Hawai'i, Samoa, New Zealand and  Tahiti.
