Tahitian Dance competition in Waikiki this weekend
Posted by Unknown | Tuesday, March 18, 2014

For those of you staying at our vacation rental units in Waikiki, I highly recommend walking over to the Waikiki Shell on Friday, March 21st and Saturday, March 22nd to watch Hawaii’s biggest and best Tahitian dance competition.  It's just a short distance from our units in The Seashore, Foster Tower, Pacific Monarch, Cabana at Waikiki, and many others, and it's a family friendly event that everyone will enjoy.

  The Waikiki Shell is at the Monserrat Avenue end of Kapiolani Park, near the Kapiolani Bandstand, and across the street from the Honolulu Zoo and the Waikiki Aquarium.  The sound of the drums, the fast paced dancing, and the exotic costumes are a must see!

 The show also feature Polynesian fashion shows and an exhibition by local Polynesian groups performing traditional dances.  You will also get to see a variety of Polynesian arts and crafts unique solely to this event.

After months of rehearsal, groups and soloists alike prepare for a complete day of competition amongst those similar in age for the coveted award of top dancer in their age group as well as advancing to the solo champion award.
