PLACES WHERE WE HAVE PERFORMED
Authentic Polynesian entertainment featuring the exciting and colorful dances from the South Pacific!
Arizona’s spectacular Polynesian revue. The vibrant spirit of Polynesia comes from the celebration of life among the people of Polynesia. You can relive that memorable feeling as you relax and enjoy the music and dances from the islands of Hawaii, Samoa, Tonga, New Zealand (Aotearoa), Fiji, and Tahiti.
About Polynesian Entertainment
Our performances are colorful energy-
Emceeing and audience participation
Live or recorded music
Several different dances and activities, including the following:
Hawaii: Graceful movements, emphasizing the hips and hands, tell a story about life in Hawaii.
Tahiti: Wearing, beautiful tall headdresses, grass skirts and hand tassels, the dancers perform the Otea, moving their hips to the fast, pulsating drum beats.
New Zealand: Maori poi balls, which are balls attached to long cords, are twirled
and swung about the body to form patterns, in a lasso-
Samoa: Clapping and slapping Sa Sa dances tell a story about life in Samoa. Rhythm dances are performed with Lapa sticks. And a dramatic fire/knife dancer gyrates, leaps and spins while juggling flaming torches to a rapid, primeval drum beat.
Tropical Polynesian Productions is available for: private parties, wedding receptions, *funeral/memorial services, corporate functions, any occasion.
OTHER DANCES INCLUDED IN OUR PERFORMANCES
FYI: Samoan and Tongans perform the Money Dance, it is a tradition for the audience to give the dancer money, by either placing the money on the stage near her or tucking the money into her clothes. Some throw the money on the stage. The purpose of this dance is to show appreciation and support for her dancing, as well as the dancer. We will let you know if we will perform this dance, so, be prepared to tell your guest about this dance and let them know what to do.
Tropical Polynesian Productions is located in Glendale, AZ. We bring the spirit of the Polynesian islands and culture to Arizona and to the world!
