Hālau Hula Ka No’eau

Grades K-12

Introduce students to the colorful history of Hawai’i and its unique culture. Celebrating their 35th Anniversary, Hālau Hula Ka No‘eau is dedicated to preserving and performing traditional hula styles, teaching that the art of Hawaiian dance expresses all that we see, hear, smell, touch, taste, and feel. The company draws from the history and folklore of Hawai‘i, bridging ancient and modern hula, showcasing the importance of carrying on the art form’s legacy. The Halau affirms its roots in kahiko (ancient) hula, pays homage to the rich artistic era of the Hawaiian monarchy, and charms with the more light-hearted ‘auana (modern) hula of today.

LBC performance may not include pieces from above video.

Extend and enrich your field trip to LBC with a self-guided tour of our outdoor Sculpture Garden!

Students can safely explore our outdoor Sculpture Garden the main exhibits as well as the landscape, bridges, and walkways. Its giant oak trees offer shady seating where classes can discuss their recent experience as consumers of the arts.

LBC opened the Sculpture Garden in 2015 as a gift to our North Bay community. With the support of Sutter Hospital and other generous donors, the Sculpture Garden presents rotating works from contemporary regional artists who create monumental outdoor art that becomes incorporated into the landscaped natural setting.

The LBC’s current exhibition for the outdoor Sculpture Garden, Geometry in Art is running now through August 2025. This exhibition celebrates the intersection of geometry and artistic expression through the works of nine extraordinary artists, each presenting a unique perspective and aesthetic through their exploration of form, line, and negative space.

You can sign up for a self-guided tour right on your School Show application or email us.
