With vivid, whimsical illustrations and lyrical writing, Carla Golembe shares the history, meaning, and spirit of hula. The words and pictures pair together in much the same way that the chants and movements of hula complement each other, and the accompanying read-along CD further immerses readers and listeners in the joy of the dance.
Complete background and instructions for long and short poi balls (single and double), stick games, action songs and dances, haka (men's posture dances), and the welcome ceremony. Also several choreographies, costuming, and games. Many illustrations of each movement, plus color photos of authentically costumed dancers.
