The Hawaiian Hula Dance

Over the years the Hula dance has been associated with hula girls and pure entertainment, however its origin is traced back to religious and spiritual practices. Hula was a movement, or rather a celebration, of deities and ritually marked occasions.

The dance displayed the history of the peoples and it embodied a wonderfully delightful pastime enjoyed by deities and humans. There are several stories that speak of the origins of Hula, however one is widely accepted, that being the creation of Kapo. Kapo was the first dancer and teacher of the Hula dance, so it’s not at all surprising that the true origin of Hula was traced back to Kapo.
