Polynesian Rhythms at FPL

Young, older, and everyone between came out last evening to the FPL to watch and learn about Polynesian dance from the wonderful dance team Pele of Polynesia.  In celebration of Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month, Pele of Polynesia featured traditional dances from Tahiti, Samoa, New Zealand, Fiji, and Hawai'i. Group leader Bernadette (Pele) also expounded on some of the history of these traditional dances. A special thanks as well to Josie and Jim Travlos for helping to arrange this wonderful event, and for sharing their cultural knowledge with those in attendance. Audience participants of all ages had a great time learning these dances and listening to wonderful Polynesian music.
