On behalf of the Municipal President, Luis Alberto Michel Rodríguez, the Director of Tourism and Economic Development, José Ludvig Estrada Virgen, recognized the participation of this group in the activities of the double anniversary of our port, presenting them with an award on behalf of the residents of Vallarta.

“There is no doubt that the wealth of a people is in its people and that its identity is nourished by its culture, a culture that is transmitted and enriched from generation to generation through its art in all its forms and phrases; my total gratitude to the dance group for so accurately and respectfully recreating the dance of another people, reminding us that there are no borders. It is an honor for Puerto Vallarta to receive them in this emblematic theater and to be able to appreciate the discipline and dynamism of these worthy young representatives of dance in our state,” he emphasized.

The enthusiastic participation of the young dancers infected the public, who were also invited to be part of the show, recreating the steps of the Hawaiian dance, which was greatly appreciated by the participants.

The Polynesian Dance Academy Kalani Kalákaua began its activities in November 2003 as a workshop at the Sayula Culture House, under the direction of teacher Gabriela Sandoval Ramos, who in 2006 built her own facilities.
