This was a high energy, fun group! Remember, this is polynesian dance, not the slow hula. We had a limited budget, so we booked the 4 -person group, which consited of a male drummer, and three performers- dancers and singers for a 30 minute performance. This was jiust perfect for a luau themed dinner. The most fun part was when they took a group of ladies up and showed them how to make the moves! It was hilarious and everyone had a great time.

Our company sponsored a conference social networking event, and we hired Desert Polynesia to perform and interact with our audience. They were very quick to respond in my email communications with them prior to the event, and they were very accommodating to our requests. Their performance was excellent -- and they were great at getting our attendees involved, which we had asked them to do. We were extremely pleased with them in all aspects, and will definitely hire them again for future events.

I hired Desert Polynesia for a tiki themed event in Austin and they did a wonderful job! All performers were so nice (2 dancers + 1 drummer). They came in beautiful costumes and put on quite the show! Would definitely hire them again for another event!

I have worked with Desert Polynesia twice and would definitely recommend them for your event. They are extremely professional, talented, and huge crowd pleasers. Both events we have hired them for, we have been told by our attendees that it was the best event they had ever been to. They are very easy to work with -- and very nice people. You will not be disappointed if you have them perform for you.

We hired Desert Polynesia to entertain 137 graduating high school seniors at a backyeard luau. The kids really enjoyed the performance and their oppotunities volunteer to learn to dance. It was hilarious! We received lots of compliments from the kids. The performers were very accomodating and readily adjusted to a change in our schedule on performance day. They also stayed late to pose for pictures with the kids. We are already considering hiring them again next year for another graduation party. Highly recommend.
