The Island Breeze show is filled with excitement, aloha and 'ohana, (love and family). From the Fijian and Maori dances of war to the gracefulness of our Hawaiian hula hands, we bring you and your family a fun-filled evening. Our daring Samoan Fire knife dancer highlights your experience with an astonishing demonstration of bravery and skill!
Aloha! E Hele mai. Come and listen to the sounds... the distant call of the Hawaiian chanter... and the beating of the ipu heke. We will share the laughter, the color, the excitement and the joy of the Hawaiian Hula.
Talofa! Join the 'aiga (family) in Samoa where the people love life and enjoy having a great time. You will be fascinated by the bravery and courage of the Siva 'Afi (Samoan fire-knife dance).
Meet our cousins the first families to the Hawaiian Islands the "Tahitians." After the islands were settled, they arrived in double hauled canoes from the south. Come and listen to their resounding drums and pounding rhythms and the dance "Ia Orana!"
Bula Vinaka! Anthropologists believe the people of Fiji eventually settled all of Polynesian. Their "meke", or spear dance fascinates audiences because of the dancers agility.
Kia'ora! Native to New Zealand are the Moari. You are welcomed into their whanau (family) and greeted with a haka by our Maori warriors. Women compliment the strength of the men with their powerful "Karaga" (chant) and the graceful "waiata a ringa" long poi ball dance.
