Polynesian Lu'au Entertainment - Dances of Hawai'i, Tahiti and the Maori people
Some two thousand years ago, intrepid voyagers from the western fringe of the Pacific sailed out into the unknown. Early adventurers came to the islands of Tahiti and a thousand years later made their way north to the Hawai'ian islands. A couple of hundred years after that discovery, canoes landed on the islands of Aotearoa, today's New Zealand. Along with many other island settlers, these are the people of Polynesia.

Polynesian Luau Dancers For Parties
Polynesian Luau Dancers for a party or wedding

ALOHA! Take your summer Luau or theme party up to the next level - the Gypsy Folk Ensemble will bring you the entrancing music and dances of the rich cultures of the Polynesian people.

The hollow call of the pu invites you to a special Polynesian Luau experience:

The Hawai'ian hula is here, with its musical implements and its intricate movements telling its story, ancient or modern. Here too, you can find the lure of the exotic isles of Tahiti with their grass skirts, energetic hip-swaying dances, and hypnotic drum rhythms.

The Maori people of New Zealand also beckon with the fierce challenge dance or haka of the men, the graceful lines of the poi ball dance, and the stories of the action dances where each movement has a meaning.

Gypsy has been providing Luau and other dance entertainment for more than 25 years in Southern California. Contact us now to hire Polynesian dancers for your next Luau party.

Hawai'ian Musical Implements
Historically, most Hawai'ian musical instruments, or implements, used to accompany dance were percussive. Gypsy's Hawai'ian hula dancers employ three of these implements in our Polynesian Luau shows: the ipu, or gourd, hit with the hand, the 'uli 'uli, a rattle type of gourd decorated with feathers, and pu 'ilis, split bamboo sticks which are hit against each other or on the dancer's shoulders.
