Hello, my name is Mina Va'a. I dance for Poe Ote Moana, a new tahitian group that was just made in Waipahu. And I was just wondering, what if you wanted to sign up for a competition? where do go? and how do you registrate? !

Certain organizations (like us) and or dance group will host a dance competition. Another organization that hosts a dance competition is the Polynesian Cultural Center, a major sponsor of Tahiti Nui International's annual "Heiva I Honolulu". Their website is:


An updated comprehensive list of groups and dance festivals is listed at the website of another of our sponsors and webmaster, Scott Nagata, Black Pearl Designs:


Locally on the island, Manutahi just completed their event on the 19th of April. Te Vai Ura Nui and Maohi Nui host solo dance events occasionally. Also, it is rumored that Mehetia Productions may be holding an event this year.

Otherwise, if traveling is an option, on Maui and Kauai there are dance festivals scheduled for August of this year. California groups, Nonosina, Nemenzo, and Hitia O Te Ra hold dance competitions annually, too.

In Las Vegas, one of our sponsors, Ravahere Allred, is hosting a Miss Pearls of Polynesia Pageant and a dance competition in Las Vegas.

They all have websites and are easily googleable.

Lastly, we look forward to your participation in our event for 2010! So I have you on our mailing list and will be contacting you once our forms are online and our online payment schedule is in order for Heiva I Honolulu 2010.
