Polynesian- Includes Hula, Tahitian, and Maori
Hula is a dance native to Hawaii, which involves rhythmic, often flowing hip motions accompanied by hand gestures which tell a story, and can be of the ancient (kahiko) or modern (auana) style.
Tahitian dance includes Otea and Aparima styles. The Tahitian Otea involves fast motions of the hips as they interpret the drum beats of the music. Aparima, while still incorporating the hip motions, involves hand gestures similar to the story-telling motions of hula.
Maori dance, from New Zealand, involves haka using hand gestures as well as poi (spinning balls on a braided cord) and tossing sticks. In the haka, feet and hip motions are more limited, and are used to keep time while motions of the hands and poi tell the story.
Lyrical- A fusion of ballet and jazz dance expressing the meaning and emotion communicated in the song. Powerful, expressive songs are often used in lyrical dance to give dancers a chance to express a range of strong emotions through their dancing. Movements in lyrical dance are characterized by fluidity and grace, with the dancer flowing seamlessly from one move to another.
