E KOMO MAI! Island Moves Family Center is a 3000 square foot facility in San Jose, California, and is the general name chosen to house Sonny’s Place Hawaiian Shop, Island Moves Productions and Hālau Nā Wai Ola. The hālau is under the direction of Kau`i Isa-Kahaku and has been in existence since 1997. Hālau Nā Wai Ola participates in several competitions, festivals and community events throughout the year and has travelled as far as Italy to perform. Our students range in age from three years to our kūpuna (elders) and new students are accepted four times a year.
