KANEOHE (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hip Hop has taken the world and this generation by storm and Hawaiʻi is no different. Amy Kalili caught up with a young local dance teacher in Kâneʻohe, who has a passion for dancing, hip hop included!
Ke kahukahu nei nô kçia kaimahine i ke aloha hulahula me kâna mau haumâna ponoʻî iho nô.
This young local girl is cultivating a passion for dance with her students.
Loaʻa ka leʻaleʻa. Aʻo pehea e hana i kou kino, e hulahula i mua kekahi mau kanaka, ʻaʻole loaʻa ka hilahila.
Mea Hulahula Hip Hop
Dancing and performing is lot's of fun!
He leʻaleʻa a he pôʻaiapili maikaʻi kçia no nâ ʻôpio i mea ʻole e lilo aku i nâ ʻano hana kûpono like ʻole nô paha.
Besides being fun, she sees this as a great outlet and option for youth.
Ma koʻu wa kamaliʻi ua hana wau i keia mau mea ma na kauwela kekahi and ina ʻaʻole wau e hana ka hulahula e hele ana paha wau me kekahi mau kanaka ʻaʻole maikaʻi.
Growing up, I danced year round and it probably kept me from hanging out with the wrong crowd.
Mea nui kçia pilina me kâna mau haumâna. A ʻaʻole he pilina kumu a haumana wale nô, he ʻohana nô hoʻi!
She cultivates great relationships with her students. Some are even ʻohana!
Hiki ke aʻo i nâ ʻano kaila like ʻole, a ʻoiai ke aʻo nei koʻu kuaʻana hiki iaʻu ke ʻano hahai iâ ia a e aʻo i nâ mea hou.

Ma luna hoʻi o kona kahua paʻa, ke ʻimi aku nei nô kçia haumana puka o ka papahana kula kaiapuni i kâna mau hana a ʻoihana ma ke ao holoʻokoʻa.
