Hui O Hula celebrate LWer on her 90th birthday
LW’s Hawaiian dance club, Hui O Hula, helped Betty Verhoorh, of Mutual 12, celebrate her 90th birthday in style by performing for her and her adoring fans and family, many of whom traveled from Holland. The group also taught attendees some moves.
Hui O Hula offers LW residents traditional hula lessons. There are regular classes in the mirrored exercise room upstairs in Clubhouse 6 every Tuesday afternoon. Those who have been loving “Walk in, Hula Out” may continue to sway along (without studying) to live Hawaiian music from 3-5 p.m. For those who want to learn and review new and old hula, class starts at 1 p.m.
A beginning class, given by Yo Kishi, has been so well-received that it will continue on Thursday from 1:30-2 p.m. at Veterans Plaza. Regular hula dancing begins there, between the LW Library and Clubhouse 3, after basic steps have been taught.
All are welcome on both Tuesday and Thursday, regardless of skill level, without charge.
Hui O Hula dancers enjoy volunteering to share their aloha with others. For more information, call (562) 431-2242.
Betty Verhoorh, "90 and Fabulous," enjoys "Here's a toast to you and me" from "Tiny Bubbles," as performed by her adoring family and friends.
