Enjoy the Sights and Sounds of the Pacific Islands with MALIALOLE
Repertory Dance Theatre's RING AROUND THE ROSE welcomes the artists from MALIALOLE for the first time on January 12, 2019. These talented musicians and dancers will share the culture of the Pacific Islands in a fun and interactive show for children and families.
Malialole (Mah-lee-yah-loh-lay) is a Polynesian Music, Dance and arts school, ensemble and entertainment group. Malialole's mission is to perpetuate the Polynesian culture through song and dance while promoting cultural awareness of all Pacific Island People sharing stories of the past and present. It is the goal of Malialole to teach, build and connect the youth with the beautiful Polynesian culture and tradition of respect and love.
Directed by Merine Vida Tuitamaalelagi, Malialole recently performed on RDT's November performance of MOSAIC. In a recent review, Les Roka of The Utah Review called the dancers "irresistibly ebullient." Their energy is contagious and they are sure to bring a phenomenal, wiggle-friendly performance for all to enjoy.
