The Island Flowers is a Hip Expressions Studio company specializing in Polynesian dance. Students will learn troupe choreographies, as well as develop solos for performances at 1001 Nights Showcases, Studio shows, and various other community outreach events. Participation in the Island Flowers is for intermediate/advanced students to professional dancers who show passion and dedication, and is by invitation only. Students who are interested in joining should speak directly to the Director, Karen Sun Ray, about their intent, and will be given guidelines to follow that would potentially lead to an invitation.
Directed by Karen Sun Ray, dancers in Island Flowers will develop performance technique, stage presence, gain performance savy, and learn to work as a group and solo, while continuing to refine their technique and learn the cultural aspects of this ethnic dance form. The Island Flowers mission is to have fun and inspire and educate others through group performances, while fostering the growth of individual dancers.
