Napua O' Polynesia means Flowers of Polynesia.


This RI based dance troupe was founded
in 1988 by artistic director Carolyn Castro.
Performing at various events throughout
the New England area, the dancers,
drummers, & musicians bring you on a
cultural tour of the Polynesian Islands of
Hawaii and New Zealand, as well as Tahiti
and the Philippines. Troupe members have
competed three times at the International
Hula Competition in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Our performances include Kahiko (Ancient)
and Modern hula.  Napua O' Polynesia is
based out of the Carriage House Theater
in Providence, RI.



  We are always available to bring a touch of
   Polynesia to your special party or event.
