In the remote Lau island of Fulaga, the traditional dances are kept alive through practice and Mekes (dance and song parties put on to entertain locals and visitors alike). We were present at a party organised by the women of the main village to raise funds for community projects. The dance in this film was taught by a housebound 80 year old women to her younger neighbours and it represents the women's job of fishing in the island's lagoon. Of course, it ended up with the visiting yachties being roped in (so you'll see Dianne in action)!
