Polynesian dance is about so much more than moving your body in beautiful ways. Its about passing on stories, past and present, and developing a lifestyle that promotes harmony with the world around us and within us. It's important to know that we encourage you to learn about the culture, and we teach about it in class, even if you're just after a fun workout. Understanding the deeper meaning will give you a deeper connection to the dance, and the wisdom will translate into your everyday life.
Live pono, spread aloha.
LSHO dancers have represented the UK in several international dance competitions and shows, including in Tahiti. We are a group of strong, committed dancers who always bring a high standard traditional and authentic Polynesian experience.
Our relationships extend beyond the studio and we are more than just a dance group- we are ‘ohana.
All are welcome to be a part of our community.
LSHO is led by Krysten Resnick, a long-time professional Polynesian dancer who has performed and competed throughout the world. She recently returned to Tahiti where she competed as a soloist in the Heiva International Ori Tahiti World Cup and participated in the Master’s workshops. Krysten likes to create an informal and welcoming atmosphere in her classes, as most of those who attend are completely new to the Polynesian styles. Her classes are dynamic: moving from fast-paced with quick aerobic movements, to slow and graceful body isolations, always adapting to the energy and needs of the dancers.
