Every year in the month of December, before we go on winter break, there’s a Winter Wishes assembly to celebrate the holiday season. There are multiple performances done by different departments, such as band, orchestra, choir, club performances, and many more.

This year, one of the clubs that will be performing is Polynesian and Pacific Islander club. They’re doing a dance this year at Winter Wishes, the routine being performed to the song, “Logo Te Pate” by artist Te Vaka.

They have put lots of time and effort into perfecting the movements of the dance, thanks to club leaders, Lofi King, senior and Liki Aetonu, sophomore. The two have helped make sure everyone knows what they are doing.

“The people helping us are really patient” junior, April Yabes who is a member of Pacific Islander and Polynesian club said. They have been practicing since October 10th, and have their placement figured out for the assembly.

The placement of the dance includes a group of dancers facing the seniors, while one group faces the juniors and sophomores. Meanwhile, a handful of members dance in the middle, between the outside dancers. The choreography has been practiced for awhile, and the members like the routine.

“I wouldn’t change anything,” sophomore Jacob Wood, member of Pacific Islander and Polynesian club said. The dance routine is something that they’ve put lots of time and effort into, and if it weren’t for the close community that Pacific Islander and Polynesian club has, putting on such a performance would be a bit more difficult.

Everyone that is currently in the club encourages people to join if they want to. Everyone is welcome in Pacific Islander and Polynesian club.

“We invite everyone who wants to join,” Wood said. The club’s overall positive attitude will bring much more success to the performance at the assembly.

Pacific Islander and Polynesian club will be performing sooner than you know it, so make sure you don’t miss out on their performance next month at Winter Wishes. Thanks to all of their practice, time, and work put into their routine, everyone will be able to enjoy their successful performance at the assembly.
