Dues


A DANCE CLASS is considered A Hula class OR A Tahitian class. The fee for dance classes are per type, not number of classes taken. For example, if you’re in Papa Hui Hula & Keiki Hula, your monthly fee is $45. Both classes are Hula, therefore, you’re paying for A Hula class ONLY no matter how many Hula classes you take. The highest class fee will apply. All DANCE CLASS(ES) dues are per person per class.

If a person takes a Hula and a Tahitian class, the discounted monthly class dues are $70/month or equivalent. ($20 discounted price from 2 classes at $45/each)

If a family (‘ohana) of 2 or more people take multiple dance classes, the discounted monthly class dues DO NOT EXCEED $140/month or equivalent. Be aware in some cases 2 or more people taking multiple dance classes could equal less than the maximum $140/month.
