Most hotels have various activities/itineraries, which I’m pretty sure people rarely participate in, unless you’re trying to preoccupy an annoying child. However, the activities provided at the Wailea Marriott seemed kinda fun (ukulele lessons! …booked solid. postcards! …wasn’t as fun as it sounded.) So when we saw Hula Lessons — 9 AM on the same day we were going to a luau for dinner, my sister and I thought it could be kinda fun and headed to the main lawn under the banyan tree.
Here’s a video of us learning the traditional luau to The Hukilau Song!
Please note: yes, as some of you may realize, the song kindof stops matching up to the moves about halfway through the dance. It was hard to hear the song from the original video taken, so I got a new version of it and edited the video in iMovie on my iPhone 4, but I’m not positive that it was the same version of “The Hukilau Song” as the one we learned to. Either that or we were just going way faster than the song.
I DID however, figure out that by using the Pixelpipe app, I could upload HD videos from my iPhone to youtube. Yay technology and lots of trial and error!
Our super awesome hula skills were put to good use at the Luau that night – semi-forced audience participation is a wonderful thing. There will be LOTS of video for that post — you’ll practically be AT the luau with us. Yay!
