The Essence of Hula
Hula encompasses all aspects of Hawaiian Culture and embraces the History of the Hawaiian people. Hula is an dance-style art form which is accompanied by music or oli (chanting). It dates back to the original Hawaiians who settled in Hawaii many many hundreds of years ago. The Hula allows the story of the mele (song) to be told through dance. Using hand motions and foot steps, dancers are able to portray the story or meaning visually. Dancers tell the story of the waves crashing on the shoreline or the gentle breeze in the trees with effortless grace due to years of passionate practice.
