Examples: trees blowing in the wind, fish swimming in the ocean. The Hawaiian goddess Laka separated hula into two groups. Olapa or Agile - representing the younger energetic dancers and dances. Hoopaa or Steadfast represented older dancers. A;ll hula dances originate from a series of only six moves with many ways of using these movements and gestures to create unique and beautiful dance and story.
