A traditional form of Hula is a seated dance called the Hula Noho. Although one would assume that sitting is an easier position to be in, the exact opposite is true. The “Noho” position for Hula is one in which the dancer’s legs are bent at the knee and tucked under the body. The dancer then engages the thigh muscles and lifts their upper body to hover over the floor & over their feet. The entire body weight of the dancer must be effortlessly moved up and down, side to side & front and back and the hips must show a swaying movement and at times, an ‘ami (circular rotation). Simultaneously the upper body requires hand motions to tell the story and often times in a Hula Noho the dancer must also oli (chant) the entire mele (composition). Facial expressions must be executed & many times the playing of an implement/instrument in one hand completes the common Hula Noho.
Today you will see this traditionally kahiko (ancient) style of hula adapted to hula ‘auana (modern) as seen in this picture.
Dancer: Fumika Endo from Kilohana Japan
