Bear in mind that this is NOT a hula/polynesian fitness dvd like the ones by Kili. Her dvds are are absolutely great workouts but are not so good for anyone wishing to learn authentic Polynesian dance as the moves are combined with aerobic excerise movements. While Tumata's dvd is not a workout per se, you will certainly know you've been using your muscles.
Tumata's dvd is devoted solely to learning the fundamentals of Polynesian dance and it is a must have for anyone interested in this exquisite dance form. It also treats the dance with the reverence it so deserves. In a delightful special features segment, Tumata also takes us to Polynesia to see the birthplace of this dance form. It is a treat for the eye and a wonderful cultural learning experience.
The settings for this dvd are visually stunning and the music sublime. At over 70 minutes in length, you get a lot quality dance instruction for a very low price. Well done, Miles Copeland, well done!! Please, please give us a follow up!!!!
some of the advanced steps include the pa'i pa'i, the hamenimeni,and many more. I do hope Tumata continues to build on this foundation dvd.
