In a previous posting, I recently received a comment inquiring about "registering for our dance competition and/or other competitions".

I responded with the following and wanted to post that anew for all:

Certain organizations (like us) and or dance group(s) will host a dance competition/festival; some annually, otherwise every two or three years.

Another organization that hosts an annual dance competition is the Polynesian Cultural Center, a major sponsor of Tahiti Nui International's annual "Heiva I Honolulu". Te Mahana Hiro'a O Tahiti, is held every July near Tiurai season, normally in July. For more information visit their website:


An updated comprehensive list of groups and dance festivals is listed at the website of another of our sponsors and webmaster, Scott Nagata and 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. Although the annual Hilo Fete was canceled this year, look forward to future events by the Hilo organization. California groups, Nonosina, Nemenzo, and Hitia O Te Ra (as well as others) 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.

So for all who read this posting, TNI is trageting a website update with "Heiva I Honolulu" 2010 information and registration forms by June 2009. Watch for it!
