Noa'ia and Bula Vinaka! My name is Myra and I am a Rotuman, born and raised in Suva, Fiji. I am 40 years old, married and have 7
children. I have lived in Las Vegas for 12 years and enjoy performing, participating in ori competitions and
teaching Polynesian dance.
dancing started at a very young age for me. As a teenager I was fortunate to learn from well respected teachers
who taught maori, tahitian, samoan dances and hula. I spent my teenage years performing as often as possible and
loved every moment. My first group and solo competition for tahitian dance was at Palace Station Hotel(Las
Vegas) at the age of 17. I also performed in Salt Lake City, St George and St Paul/Minneapolis. After having
6 children I decided to teach polynesian dance. It's been a memorable experience meeting new people through dance classes,
children's parties and polynesian shows.
I welcome anyone to try out my classes. Each student joins for a different reason. Many
join for the love of the culture, some join for exercise and others join to perform. Whatever your reason
might be, my classes are to bring joy to all that attend.
feel my love for the culture when we meet.
