French Academy Experiences Polynesian Dance

July 2, 2014

French Academy students were greeted in traditional Polynesian fashion as they entered the pavilion for their evening showcase of Polynesian dancing. The dances that were performed are traditionally from French-speaking areas of the Pacific. Aside from being entertaining, the evening focused on teaching French Academy students about Polynesian culture and about how widely French is spoken. As a whole, the event was a relaxing break from the usual hectic nature of MMLA and left audience members dreaming of islands in the sun.
