Hula-Tahitian-Maori Dancer »
Flint Oak has had the TeKana Hau Nui Dancers perform in a Luau that was held over the 4th of July weekend last year to a sold out crow of 200 Members. I cannot express in words the professionalism that Ms. Holyoak and the dancers exhibited during their 1.5 hour show. Our Members were "blown away" as was I. --- Jeff Oakes, General Manager, Flint Oak Hunting Preserve
TeKana Hau Nui Dancers™ offer an exciting show filled with polynesian dancing from islands throughout the pacific. The costumes are authentic, the music is beautiful and the traditional dances include Tahitian, Hawaiian Hula, Maori Poi Ball, Hawaiian Rhthym Sticks and Hawaiian Pu'ili Stick, all of which make for an exciting live entertainment show.
TeKana Hau Nui Dancers are available for live performances, luaus, corporate events, dance workshops, polynesian dance classes, school assemblies and more. We also offer workshops and demonstrations on weaving, costume-making and the cultural significance of the dances we perform and the traditions of the island people.
Producer/Director, Kerry Holyoak is a professional dancer from the island of Saipan in Micronesia. She has developed a special 40-minute presentation specifically for school assemblies that takes students on a virtual tour of the pacific islands through an exciting, fast-paced, multi-media presentation coupled with dance demonstrations in authentic costumes. She also engages audiences of all ages by getting them out of their seats to dance with her as she teaches two very basic dances. Supplemental materials in the form of colorful and informative PDF documents are available upon request for extended classroom teaching on the topics of geography, world history, plus ethnic cultures and traditions as these topics relate to the dances and performance numbers displayed during the assembly.
TeKana Hau Nui Dancers™ was established by Mrs. Kerry I. Holyoak of Fredonia, Kansas. Kerry has over 20 years of experience as a polynesian dancer. She began performing in events such as the Lotus Festival in Los Angeles in 1987. Kerry is from the island of Saipan in the Northern Mariana Islands where she danced professionally.
Kerry has developed a special one-person act, specifically for schools, where she demonstrates Hula and Tahitian dancing. She tells stories of the traditions and meanings of the dances. She also engages audiences of all ages by getting them up and teaching simple dances from around the Pacific.
