Ha Lao Leo Nani - Studio Rental

Our beautiful studio, Ha Lao Leo Nani -
The Gathering Place, is now available to rent.

The new studio is a remarkable, peaceful place for your workshops, recording sessions, rehearsals, artist-in-residence offerings, meditation retreats, dance retreats, lecture series, concerts, ensemble rehearsals,  video recordings, photography workshops, ETC. ETC.-ETC..

Contact us to begin the conversation. We look forward to working together to build a beautiful experience for you and your artist projects.  In addition to Rhiannon's annual workshops, we have room for six special week-long programs and an assortment of one to two day offerings.
This 1600-square-foot building includes a 1000-square-foot multi-purpose space with dancer friendly recycled rubber floor, 6 foot Steinway grand piano, folding chairs, and adjacent bathroom.  We are entirely sustainable with salt water battery solar and rain catchment for the bathroom. The sky lights and double glass doors on 2 sides along with the wall of jalousie windows allow the trade winds to fill the studio with beautiful fresh air and the ever changing light.

Words cannot describe the power of the land.
Working in a quiet, private studio nestled on the hill with a view of the rich farm below, the ocean air floating fresh on the trade winds and Mauna Kea mountain in the distance  all combine to create a space for you to refresh your spirit with renewed energy to create beautiful work and to spend time with your artistic collaborators without distraction.
