|Tahitian Dancers at|
The Polynesian Cultural Center, Oahu
No, I’m not talking about a parent/child movement class. I’m talking Tahitian Dance.
Last month I attended a shower for my friend, Erika, who was getting married in Hawaii. So, of course the entire shower had an amazingly fun Hawaiian theme. My kind of celebration!
One of the best moments during the afternoon was when a teen relative of the hostess performed a Tahitian dance for us—in full dress and accessories! It was great.
But then she asked us to stand up and learn how to do Tahitian. Now, not everyone was thrilled with the prospect of trying to shake their hips like she did, but some of us gave it a try. I was among the adventurous.
I’ve done a lot of hula, but never Tahitian, and the way you move is completely different. In hula you use your legs and steps to move your hips. In Tahitian it’s the knees. What fun!!
And the best part? After the lesson, they gave an award to The Best Dancer. Guess who won? (Big Grin!)

Next week I’m going to interview Erika about her Hawaiian Wedding experience. You don’t want to miss it!
Happy Tahitian Dancing!
Mahalo for visiting!
