Kia Ora, talofa lava, malo e lelei, fakaalofa lahi atu, kia orana, bula vinaka, namaste and greetings!! It’s Pasifika week in Aotearoa, this means it’s a week long celebration of all things Pacific. This includes the birthday dance we had with Mrs Tele’a! Part of the celebration is the Polyfest! This Thursday we are planning to travel to Manukau to take part in some workshops and then visit stages. The two stages we will be visiting will be the Maori and Diversity stages. Did you know that this event - the Polyfest celebrates 40 years since it’s beginning? Awesome isn’t it!
whanau and young kids participate in these stages because it is there culture.Performers go through hard things to get people to watch them, Learn the dance, Know the song to the dance, learn how to move and know where you're gonna be positioned and remember who you're next to, they had to learn all that to get perfect.
Polyfest promote our different culture because it shows creativity and responsibility in the dances.
I’m looking forward to polyfest because I want to see different dance culture because some are fast and some are slow.
