Spirit of the South Seas
"Spirit of the South Seas: Hula Halau Na Keiki 'O Ohana Lokahi" It is a name that celebrates children & family and sharing. Their mission is to entertain you in their “laid back” custom while promoting cultural awareness for all people. Their many performances include PNE, Kitsilano Showboat, Folkfest at Centennial Theatre, Meek Theatre and Presentation House on the North Shore; QE Theatre Vancouver; and Shadbolt Center for the Fine Arts in Burnaby. They have also been honored to perform for Air Tahiti Nui Festivals, Expo ’86, major multi-cultural celebrations, such as Iranian, Korean and Chinese New Year, Caribbean Days, Serbian, Italian and Japanese Festivals among some of the ethnic celebrations…. Grey-Cup half-time show, Pope’s 1984 visit, Lotto Canada draw, telethons, ’76 Olympics, opening of the Vancouver Art Gallery, 1977 Premiers’ Conference, Prince Phillip & Prince Andrew’s visit in 1978, Expo ’86, hospitals, seniors homes and numerous private & public events. For more than 10 years, the halau held a huge outdoor Luau, in a secluded treed setting, with a sumptuous buffet including Kalua pig, lau lau’s, lomi lomi salmon, and other traditional “island” favorites.. amidst blazing tiki torches, under the stars, with floating candles in the water. This successful event, which entailed thousands of hours of their time and resources, had been an annual fundraiser for local Children’s charities, such as GF Strong, Youth Brain & Spinal Chord Injury Program, Children’s Hospital, and Kids’ Help Line. Performances are held year round, and classes are taught year year round for all ages at the Mickey McDougal Performing Arts Studio (240 23rd St E, North Vancouver, BC V7L 3L2) Silver Harbour Center, District Libraries in North Vancouver and community centers in Vancouver and Burnaby.
