Pacific Rhythm

We feature traditional dances from Hawaii, Tahiti, New Zealand, Fiji, Cook Islands, and Samoa with authentic costume changes for each island. In our program we bring the culture of the Pacific Islands, the music, and the dancing to you. We then get the library patrons up on their feet as we teach them some Polynesian dances.
