HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - It’s time for the 44th Annual Queen Lili’uokalani Keiki Hula competition.

Young hula dancers from across the state are converging on the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena this week for three nights of competition. Hula dancers will compete in solo and group categories.

On Thursday, the Master and Miss Keiki Hula competition featured soloists from several halau.

Then on Friday and Saturday, the halau will take center stage in both kahiko and 'auana.

Keiki hula participants help shape the next generation of hula dancers. Many go on to compete at Merrie Monarch as they get older.
