Betty learns and performs hula

Click on photo once or twice to enlarge


Betty was trained in modern dance, but loved all forms of dancing.

Upon arrival in Hawaii in August 1962, she accepted
her ex-sister-in-law's offer to teach her the hula.

Here are a few photos of her very early efforts, what she termed,
"Making an attempt to learn the hula."

(Betty's nickname was AquaBetty - she adored the color aqua.)



All photos, except the last, were taken at Sunset Beach on Oahu's
north shore,
not far from the Banzai Pipeline and Waimea Bay.
