Hula dancing is a type of dance done in Hawaii. There is a chant and song that goes with the dancing. Just as important as the dance is the costuming for the dance. Women wear a skirt or dress sometimes made of grass. Then men usually wear shorts. The women wear a crown of flowers in her hair and a lei around her neck. There is lots of training in order to become a hula dancer.

In the 1800s, missionaries came to Hawaii and witnessed the hula dancing. They thought it was a disgrace and tried to ban this type of dancing in Hawaii especially in public. However, the Hawaiians continued to do the hula dancing behind closed doors. By the mid-1800s, people were allowed to hula dance in public again.
