On January 11, 2007, some 20 members will help Roselle fulfill her long-held dream of performing in India. Thanks to the efforts of Kaua`i`s Savitri Kumaran, the group will travel first to Chennai, and then work southward, ending at Madurai about ten days later.

Rehearsals for this tour began on 11 June, the day after Kahiko Halapa i Hula Alapa`i o Keahi`s ho’ike. You can see from the photos how hard everyone was working! We shall have more information on the India trip later.

Participants will be raising funds for their airfares and other expenses, and would gladly accept donations. If you would like to help a specific halau member with her/his travel costs, please contact her/him directly. If you would like to contribute to the group’s funds, you may contact our Treasurer.
