4 (Arms, Hands, Wrists and Fingers)
In the Simple
Hula, the start is made by first extending the right arm and
hand, palm down, fingers lightly touching each other, to the
right of the body, about shoulder high, elbow slightly bent,
placing the left hand on hip with all gingers pointing down.
On count 1
dip fingers of right hand downward with wrist slightly raised,
bringing fingers up as wrist is being lowered (imitating ocean
waves). On count 2 repeat movement of fingers and wrist, this
time with forearm and hand moved halfway to chest. On count 3
again repeat fingers and wrist movement, with forearm and hands
at cent of chest not quite touching the body. On count 4 drop
the right hand on hip. You are now ready to reverse this movement
of arm, hands,wrist and fingers, which is, left arm and hand
extended to the left, working around in three counts to the chest,
dropping the left hand to the hip on count 4. You have now completed
four counts with the right arm and four counts with the left
arm. Practice this exercise until it becomes easy and natural.
Now combine Exercises 1,2, 3 and 4 as a continuous movement.
exercises include the important fundamentals used throughout
the Simple Hula.
