Polynesian Dance Arts is a dance company specializing in Hawaiian hula
and Tahitian dance. We offer audiences of all ages beautiful, colorful
and exciting performances of Polynesian dance. The upbeat hula implement
dances of Hawai'i, the mesmerizing "Otea" of Tahiti (a dance
of fast paced rhythms of the hips), and the soft, alluring hula of Hawai'i
are but a few highlights of every Polynesian Dance Arts performance. Marta
Moussa, the director, has had over 30 years of dance experience, as a
performer, teacher and choreographer. Marta has studied hula and Tahitian
dance in Honolulu, Hawai'i.
We have performed at a wide variety of venues, including
the Gauguin Tahiti exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts,
Museum of Salem, The Sea Crest Resort in Falmouth, and United Nations
Day at the State House.
