Ia Orana ALL! Life has thrown me a curve or two in the past month, so I am slightly delayed with the Participant Packet for Heiva I Honolulu 2012.
"Mauruuru roa to all who participated in TNI's Inaugural Heiva I Las Vegas 2011! Such an event is only possible with the support of every participant; group, soloist, vendor, staff, volunteer, sponsor, judge and guest are all essential to combining incredible spirit and energy into one purpose. Mille fois merci." ~ Tahiti Nui International

It's been two nights since arriving in Las Vegas and checking in to our host hotel, The Golden Nugget - LV. Groups have begun arriving slowly, as well as other out-of-town volunteers.
My excitement is building as the days countdown to Heiva I Las Vegas 2011 at the Cashman Center. I have reviewed my travel plans, yet again. Hotel - check, Car rental - check, Air travel - check. Not to mention the numerous tasks needed to be completed in preparation for the event.
Please be sure to read the solo costume requirements. There are two costumes required. A costume for the elimination rounds ONE and TWO, and a costume for the Final round.
Attention Heiva participants! The solo application deadline has been extended to August 18, 2011.
The deadline for Group and Vendor participants was extended to match that of the Solo participants, August 1, 2011.
Today, July 29, 2011 is the reservation cut off date for room reservations at the Golden Nugget for Tahiti Nui International's Heiva I Las Vegas special rates. As of 5pm PST today, the block of rooms being held under the special contracted rates for Heiva I Las Vegas will be released.

I am receiving many emails regarding Ticket sales for Heiva I Las Vegas 2011 at the Cashmen Center.
After a successful “Heiva I Honolulu” in 2010, Tahiti Nui International reviewed the opportunity to take our “Heiva” format further around the World. Having taken our solo format to Tahiti in 2007, as well as the entire Heiva format to Japan, Tahiti Nui International is excited to host its first “Heiva I Las Vegas” to be held at the Cashman Center, Las Vegas, Nevada September 2-3, 2011, with a possible add on date of September 1, 2011.
We know many locally in Hawaii, and worldwide, look forward to participating as spectator and/or performer at the Waikiki Shell. Although it is our regret that this opportunity will not take place this year, we invite you to join us in Las Vegas, Nevada, as well as prepare for “Heiva I Honolulu 2012”.
“Heiva I Honolulu 2012” will be our 10-year anniversary. This anniversary will be a celebration like no other. We encourage groups and individuals to prepare for “Heiva I Honoulu” March 2012. We will be adding additional awards, as well as opening up new dance categories and divisions.
Should you have any questions or need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
