Hawaii traditions should be honored

I know very little about hula, but last week it was most of the local news, for good reason. Hula is as much a part of Hawaii as fish and poi or kalua pork. Dance in general has always been a little outside my comfort zone. In high school I was intimidated about dancing because I could feel the disapproval for my lack of skill. I finally learned in college ten years later that I could fake it and no one cared. I suspect that was as much a generational change than a change in me. I grew up near Philadelphia where Bandstand originated and many rushed, home to watch, or maybe appear.
