What is Fiafia?

What is Fiafia:
What is Fiafia to you? Why are you asking me this I hear you say. Fiafia mean three things they are celebrations Well it is because I at my school Pt England we are having a  celebration and by doing that we performances to each other and other people like parents and Whanau. Before the big night weeks and weeks before it we get to pick three groups then some of the teachers talk about what group they're going to be in. Then we have lots and lots of practice for heaps of weeks and then we put on a performance for people. Before 2000 they had Fiafia each now and then. But now we have been doing Fiafia each second year.



My Fiafia group:
My Fiafia group was pacific contemporary dance. We had to do a lot of practice like at lunch and morning tea. On the 6th week we got to try on our dress but mine one and some of the others dress’ were too big for us. Through the weeks it got fixed but my dress were still bit too big. On the night I put my dress on and Miss Muliaumasealii and Mrs Jamali made it shorter with safety pins. It felt a bit weird when we went on stage because I’m not used to dancing in dress unless they are a  skirt dress’. Here I come Fiafia 2016!!!
