Aloha, fellow polynesian dancers. I just got Mahealani's cd Warm Up for hula and Tahitian
While I haven't done the hula warm up segment yet, the tahitian segment is really good. I need a list of all the names of the drills the drummer calls out.
I understand some of them, but I think they have different names for some of the steps. So if you have this album and know all the drills on it please send me a list and a description if you think it's one of those steps that have different names.
And if you have the hula drills too that'd be great.
Mahalo in advance. This is for my self improvement when I'm not in class!

This thread has a lot of the stuff. Just go to it and then go down and read them. I think Kaleonahenahe did a lot of work on these. They have some pretty good definitions.
