Manahere I Ori Tahiti 2017

August 1, 2017

 Vai Hau Nui was honored to participate in the 10th Anniversary Manahere I Ori Tahiti. Many many thanks to Kawailehua Hula Ohana for bringing all these groups to come together to share our love of the Tahitian culture annually. It was a weekend that allowed us the opportunity to bond, support one another and celebrate with each other.

 

We trained very hard this year for the solo competition season and all the hard work paid off. We had 17 of our dancers enter this competition in various age categories and 13 of of them made it to finals. We could not be more proud of the results with a total of 9 placements, 8 of which earned 1st Place including the Jr Overall and Senior Overall winners!
