Hula at Spiotta!
Join us this Saturday from 3-5 pm at the Spiotta Park in South Orange, NJ when Pua Ali?i ?Ilima o Nuioka is performing to celebrate the Asian American Pacific Island Heritage Month to spread some aloha!
Hula dance is a choreographed interpretation of a poetic text. At the heart of a hula performance is the poetic text called mele; without a poetic text, there is no basis for the choreographed movement interpretation. Body movements combine pictorial hand and arm gestures with rhythmic lower-body patterns that are named.
