Hula Dancing

I went to Hawai’i this past summer and learned how to do a Hula Dance. Can you imagine a cat dancing?   The Hula is unique to the Hawai’ian Islands, though it was created by the Polynesian people who first settled the islands.  The modern form of the dance uses the body, hand and foot motions as well as singing or chanting to tell a story. It is not as easy as a talented dancer makes it appear. I kept losing my place and forgetting which hand motion to use next, which had the teachers giggling at my attempts.  They were nice about it though, and very patient teachers.  Purrs, Gulliver
