Hula gâru (Hula Girls)

Hula gâru (Hula Girls) (2006) – 67/100 – hula dancing, subtitles.

If not for salsa, I might have rented this film for the novelty. What this film made me appreciate, is the sign language/ storytelling aspect of hula dancing. It is interesting to contrast the language of hula dancing, with that of salsa.

What does a cross-body lead mean?
What does a clockwise turn mean?
What does a hairbrush mean?

Spoiler scenes, dancing starts from 5:00 in the first clip, and continues to the end of the second clip:
