Group Hula and Tahitian Dance Class ~ All Levels -Aparima Part 1
This class focuses more on Tahitian Dance BUT the motions of this class can be applied to Hula as well. This class focuses on the OTAMU and OMI as a warm-up and how to execute each movement correctly for practice. Basic hand motions #1-#5 are taught to dance with the hips. Correct posture and feet and hand placements are also covered in this class. This warm-up is great for all levels. This class also goes over the beginning an Aparima called Tumu Iti. Tumu Iti is a little fast paced and is a song that talks about your Tumu or Kumu (Teacher). This is a 45 min class with the song attached.
