This year Heiva i Honolulu is being taken indoors to the Neil Blaisdell Arena! All activities will now be on Saturday, March 12, 2016 only.
This year’s Heiva will include a Solo Competition, an Overall Solo Competition, and the Group Competition. Groups have found it difficult to thrive over the last year with much member attrition and the many changes in group leadership in the tahitian dance community. This year we are doing our utmost to encourage groups and individuals to participate with higher monetary awards and prize values and we are giving away a free trip to Tahiti for the highest scoring soloist, have raised the first place solo monetary awards in every category, as well as group monetary awards.
A special recognition will be held in honor of Uncle Raymond this year. His influence on Heiva i Honolulu and the Tahitian dance community is ever more apparent as his strength and guidance is felt more so during our Heiva events.
