Check out our newest highlight video of our first festival performance of the year 2017! We were able to show "works in progress" (to debut completed work on June 25th at our Summerland event) & even had some of our newest members of Nonosina come and perform! It's always good to give back to the local Polynesian music/dance community, non-profit organizations & support an event free to the public. Mahalo nui to the "Heritage of Aloha" organization for having Nonosina close out your event!

Nonosina's doors remain open to many dancers, musicians & directors from Polynesia . Last night during our competitive Black Team practice, we had the honor of warming up with one of Tahiti’s best choreographers of vāhine & tāne movement, Kehau Chanquy. She exposed our dancers to her authentic style, mana'o, and passion for her culture! Māuruuru roa Kehau for sharing a piece of Tahiti with Nonosina. #nonosina #NonosinaDance #TahitianDrums #Tahiti #KehaulaniChanquy #TianaNonosina #'OriTahiti #Polynesian #PolynesianDance #Culture #Art #Dance #DanceisLife #Hitireva

"Bobby described this painting as a classic love story in which Hotu Hiva was escaping from an arranged marriage on Ra'iatea. Her only means of escape was a pahu drum which she used to float to the nearby island of Huahine. Here she met, fell in love with and married, Prince Te Ao Nui Maruia and later they founded the first dynasty of Huahine." ---
Inspired by Bobby's painting this years black team (adv. vāhine & tāne) will debut an original piece on June 25th at Nonosina Summerland in Anaheim, CA at Pearson Park Amphitheater. Purchase your tickets online by visiting our website.

"Te hotu nō Huahine, there is nothing stronger than the bond linking a Polynesian child to its land. It is like a mother to him. It supports him, it feeds him and one day will claim him back. After a child is born it is customary for the parents to bury the placenta (pu fenua) and plant on the spot a tree to grow in harmony with the child." Inspired by Bobby's painting & the traditions of Polynesia, this years red team will dance about the pu fenua & planting of 'uru.

Watch Bobby's painting and the traditions of Polynesia come to life throughout the choreography of Tiana N. Liufau at Nonosina Summerland. Purchase your tickets by visiting our website.

This years theme for Nonosina's orange team (adv. tamāhine) is in honor of Bobby Holcomb's painting E PĀUMA NŌ MATA'IREA/The kites of Mata'irea! In older times children would fly kites (Ha'ape'e 'Uo) made of natural resources from Mother Nature & sing songs and recite chants to send the kite higher in the sky. The child's kite who flew the highest in the sky would win a prize! Come see our depiction of the art of flying kites as we debut this piece at Nonosina Summerland June 25th @ Pearson Park, tix available online now!#BobbyHolcomb #HaapeeUo #EPāumaNōMatairea #Nonosina #NonosinaDance #Dance #DanceisLife #TianaNonosina #'OriTahiti #TahitianDance #Tahiti #Dancer #TahitianArt

"When coming into the teaching realm the very first class I was ever assigned by my mom was to teach what we call the "red team". This class typically ranges from dancers ages 10-15. This is such a crucial age since they are coming into their body, identities & just discovering so much about the world. I always keep this class small in number to create more of an intimate learning space. I strive to teach them life lessons within each dance. The red team always holds a special place in my heart as I try to be a role model in all of my actions & words to them as they need positive, strong, educated women outside of the home to help guide them in this life. When we say "dance is life" we must always apply it as so! The theme I wrote for my teens & kids last year, Te Pahu Mana, is dedicated to any teen or kid I have ever taught. May the beat of the heart and pahu be where we will always find each other." -Ra'atira Pupu 'Ori, Tiana N.
