The Tongan taualuga
I wonder if the Fiji delegates at Nukualofa will have time to watch or even to join in the dance of the taualuga. Nah, I don't think so. It's about grace and beauty and being feminine, but also about participation, as others join in with the solo dancer. Money also rains down as gifts shower the main dancer. Go to youtube to see some samples of the dancing of the taualuga from Tonga or Samoa.
