Polynesian Classes

Polynesian performing arts located in the Pacific Northwest.

Iorana, Kia Ora, Mālō e lelei, Talofa lava, Bula and Aloha... The Polynesian triangle is full of cultural traditions that are kept alive through song and dance. It is our mission to preserve the heritage through performing arts where we incorporate history, language, music and storytelling. We've been a part of the community in Puyallup during the farmers market and in Nisqually at their annual Wellbriety Pow-Wow for years. We love sharing & teaching.

*  We have a one hour practice, usually at Payette's School of Dance.
*  We have a private Facebook group for Wednesday check-ins.
*  During our check-ins students will have videos to practice or listen to. 
*  Part of the experience is dance, storytelling, language, art and ukulele to name a few. 
*  Costumes and accessories are a separate fee, but it isn't necessary in the beginning.

We dance for our Kupuna, to keep their stories & ALOHA alive.
