Contrary to the popular belief these Tahitian dancing skirts are not made of grass. They are made from the inner fiber of the wild hibiscus tree. They can weigh as much as seven or eight pounds, which apparently helps better sway when dancers move their hips. Tassels and shells are worn on the waistband to help with the movement of hips as well as for decoration. Ladies get ready to shake your hips while the men also learn a Tahitian dance for you.
