The ʻaparima or Kaparima (Rarotongan) is a dance from Tahiti and the Cook Islands where the mimicks with the hands (rima) are central, and as such it is close to the hula or Tongan tauʻolunga. It is usually a dance for groups. There are two types of ʻaparima: the ʻaparima hīmene and the ʻaparima vāvā, the latter being performed with music only, and no singing. The music is often played on the guitar or the Tahitian ʻukulele.
