Pacific Rhythm Dance Troupe

The family dance troupe Pacific Rhythm will be at the Southwest Neighborhood Library on Saturday, June 22 at 11 a.m. to entertain, amaze and teach with dances from the Polynesian islands. Their performance is fun for the whole family and includes fire dancing and a man splitting a coconut in half with his bare hands!

Get into the spirit of Pacific Rhythms with some of these great reads about the Polynesian islands.
