Primping for the Dance
These young Hula Girls were preparing to perform for a Luau. The dance was brought to the Hawaiian Islands by the Polynesians who originally settled there. This tradition has been passed down to generation after generation and seems to be a daily event that we were fortunate to have experienced.
