In awe at the Waikiki Shell as I get a preview of what is to come. Groups came ready to work hard beginning at 3pm to 10pm. Te Hei Ura, Te Mahana O Te Ra, Puahinano, Tahiti Mana and Tamatoa took the rehearsal stage into the evening with the senior groups Te Iriata'i, Heretamanui, and Maohi Nui behind them. Unfortunately, we let time slip by with a couple of groups and Maohi Nui got the short end closing the evening with less rehearsal time. Hopefully, that can be made up later tonight after the Solo Program. I can't wait to see them in full costume and music!
