Polyfest 2015

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!  

I think young men and women with their whanau take part in this event because they want to express their beautiful culture. And be proud of what their culture is and how cool it is to be in a Maori or Pacific Island.

To be in a group like this you will have to.
  • Audition
  • Practice
  • Practice
  • Practice
  • Training
  • Make costumes
  • Fundraising
  • Concert
  • Transport
  • Perform

This event is good because all the different cultures are performing their dances. And the all the cultures and make lots of friends and its a way of finding what more about what you culture is and what they perform. Its good to be different because there are lots of other culture groups there to have fun.

I am looking forward tomorrow because I want to see the Kapa Haka group they and all the other culture groups there too.
