Photos by Barbara Ries At the back of a building near downtown San Anselmo, the aloha spirit is coming to life. Suddenly, the room is awash in movement.
Skirts of red, blue, green and yellow swirl around the hips of 20 dancers. Their feet slap the wooden floor in unison.
Their hands reach toward the sky. Welcome to hula in Marin. There are no palm trees swaying, no volcanoes keeping watch over the Pacific, and yet women—and occasionally some men—from across the county kick off their shoes, wear their colorful tropical prints and dance to the sounds of paradise. For them, hula is a chance to nourish body and soul, regardless of location.
Like Ahsing, many who join this Marin halau, or hula school, have some direct or ancestral link to the Hawaiian islands. Yet the dance draws people of all backgrounds, ages, body types and dance experience.
Some want to rekindle a connection with their homeland, while others seek understanding of the Hawaiian culture. Still others simply want a new workout.
Accompanied by chants and percussion instruments, this traditional style is still practiced today, although dancers also learn modern hula, which incorporates other instruments such as the ukulele and singing, often in English.
In all its forms, hula includes graceful movements that are beautiful and expressive. Every hip swivel, every foot stomp, every turn of the palm is deliberate and studied and helps to advance a story being told. Legends, history, values and love are all topics of hula dances.
Through their movements and facial expressions, the dancers describe how the woman and her son try to return to her native Hawaii by canoe, only to become stranded when the boat overturns. Wracked with hunger, the woman devours berries without first presenting an offering to the gods.
She loses her mind as a result, and only regains her sanity after her husband finds her and makes the religious offering. Even with the story sung and chanted in Hawaiian, the dance radiates an energy understandable in any language. Originally from the islands, Behasa had no interest in hula until about ten years ago, when she decided it would be something fun for her and her goddaughter to do together.
I was deeply taken by it, on a soul level. I have been dancing and teaching ever since. Though never a dancer, she was so taken with the sounds that she looked up hula schools as soon as she returned home.
Now living in San Francisco, Andrew continues to drive to San Anselmo to immerse herself in the energy and spirituality of this ancient Hawaiian rite. The class is open to all men and women ages 12 and up; no experience required. Knights of Columbus Hall, Tunstead Ave. A number of halaus elsewhere in the Bay Area also offer lessons.

“Lovely hula hands, graceful as the birds in motion.” -Lovely Hula Hands: Music of the Hula | Year Unknown | Waikiki Records Co.-Snagged this yesterday at the @discogs @4cratediggers event at @crescentphx in Phoenix.
Per a request, why I love Lovely Hula Hands: it's both adorable and hidden, a Victorian house painted a shade of pink Gidget might have worn, situated within rock-throwing distance of the Fremont Bridge.
Inside, it looks like a s boarding house; the tables are close, the wallpaper a sort of.
