Hula /ˈhuːlə/ is a dance form accompanied by chant (oli) or song (mele). It was developed in the Hawaiian Islands by the Polynesians who originally settled there. The hula dramatizes or portrays the words of the oli or mele in a visual dance form. There are many sub-styles of hula, with the main two categories being Hula 'Auana and Hula Kahiko. Ancient hula, as performed before Western encounters with Hawaiʻi, is called kahiko. It is accompanied by chant and traditional instruments. Hula, as it evolved under Western influence in the 19th and 20th centuries, is called ʻauana (a word that means "to wander" or "drift"). It is accompanied by song and Western-influenced musical instruments such as the guitar, the ʻukulele, and the double bass. (From Wikipedia)

Tu voles plus bas aujourd'hui. Un spectacle surement agréable à regarder et à se rincer l'oeil comme on dit... Une photo bien captée dans un bel éclairage et humoristique. Excellente note.

A great capture and a well-framed shot, Eleu! I like how every dancer is up on her toes! And the center lady's smile is wonderful!

Superb dancing action snapshot in very good light. The low angle viewpoint is perfect. I like the pose with faces pointing the same directions. Well framed in portrait format.
