Century High School
Dancers grow not only in the dance but also within themselves as individuals. It takes alot of courage to try anything that is outside of anyone's comfort zone yet our dancers have pushed themselves to try something new. Confidence is somehting that our dancers have more of once they perform for their school, family, community and friends.
There are many opportunities to perform not only in school but outside events as well. Polyneisan Dance is often called on to represent Century High School like the School Choice Fair and school Jog-A-Thon's. Beautiful dances, costumes and memories are made with every show we participate in. We showcase different styles of dance (Tahitian, Hawaiian or Samoan) depending on the event type which also determines our style of costume.
Polynesian Dance is part of the after school program at Century called The Centurion Club. We welcome all students to come and join our club and experience the dancing culture of the islands like Tahitian, Hawaiian and Samoan. Anybody can join! No experience necessary.
Melissa is Century's Polynesian Dance coach. Melissa is a Century Alumni and has been dancing for 10 years.
Practice days are Mondays 1:45-3:30pm and Tuesday's through Thursday's 3-5pm.
We all come from different backgrounds but when joining the Polynesian Dance team, we all dance as one. Friendship and trust is built when we practice, get ready and perform. When we do so, we create our own family. (Ohana)
