Hawaiian Hula Dancer - Hula is a dance form developed in the Hawaiian Islands by Polynesians who originally settled there, which portrays the words of the oli or mele in a visual dance form accompanied by chant and traditional instruments. There are many sub-styles of hula, and two main positions of a hula dance, sitting (noho dance) or standing (luna dance). There are other related dances that come from other Polynesian islands, however, hula is unique to Hawaiian Islands.
