What our clients are saying....

If it wasn't for the South Pacific Island Dancers our event wouldn't have been such a smash hit!


"They were great to work with! They were on time, set up quickly and just nice people! The dancers, music, and lei greeters gave us the energy and fun we needed for the event. Who knew an authentic Hawaiian troupe would be so close to our meeting in Wayne, PA!"

-Theresa Smoot

They are definitely a crowd favorite!

"We here at University City District love having the South Pacific Island Dancers perform at our events and public spaces. Rain or shine, hot or cold, they always give a great, enthusiastic performance, and are definitely a crowd favorite!"

-University City District, Philadelphia, PA

Every guest was in awe and told us that our party was "The BEST party I've ever been to!"

"If you are looking for a unique and thoroughly entertaining way to throw a party, the South Pacific Island Dancers are AMAZING!! We've invited them to perform for us twice for special family events and we've probably attended 10 of their shows over the past 20 years! Truly an authentic Polynesian Family Luau show that included so many beautiful costume changes, props and the spectacular fire dancing, wow!! Scope & Katie are fantastic and are just as friendly. The interaction with the crowd is amazing and thanks for allowing photos after the show with guests. Keep doing what you do South Pacific Island Dancers, because it shows how much you really enjoy it!!"

It was a high-energy show with an infectious enthusiasm that had the whole audience toe-tapping and bopping along to the beat!

"The South Pacific Island Dancers were a huge hit with parents and kids alike! The audible gasp from the children when "Moana" entered the room was delightful--but it wasn't just Moana (who read a picture book in a very special storytime) the children loved. We had 50 kids (and about 40 adults) who were completely captivated by the talent of the dancers; anyone who knows small children knows it is hard to get them to sit still for any amount of time, but our audience couldn't tear their eyes away from the performances.  The children also loved the demonstration of how to do the hula. I've had many parents commenting on how wonderful the show was, and how much they and their families enjoyed it. Thank you for bringing so much joy and fun to the Heggan Library!"

It was a truly memorable night with all the music, dancing, fire show, and extreme hospitality by all of your staff!

"I would like to thank you for the most entertaining, delightful, phenomenal luau show you all performed to celebrate my 10th year Luau! You all made everyone feel as though they were in paradise in my own backyard!!! It was a truly memorable night with all the music, dancing, fire show, and extreme hospitality by all of your staff! I have, and continue to, receive the most endearing compliments about every one of you! I am so thankful I found you to make my milestone luau an even more special one, all because you were a part of it. The pig roast added another authentic touch of island paradise that was also done with impeccable style and taste! It was enjoyed by all! I will always remember this event as the best one yet and can't wait until I see you here again next year to create more special memories of my annual luau!"

Our guests raved about the entertainment!

"We've used them for 2 family parties and both were a huge success. Both times we also did the pig roast and chicken. Our guests raved about the entertainment and food. 5 stars still doesn't do this group justice!"

They kept the interest of staff and children and never let us down!

"Thanks to Katie and the South Pacific Island Dancers for making our luau more authentic and entertaining! They visited us at our camp for kids with disabilities and the performance was engaging not only for the children, but the staff as well! They interacted with the crowd and invited staff and a few children to come dance with them. They kept the interest of staff and children and never let us down!"

-Mary Flounders

"OUTSTANDING! The performance and customer service exceeded our expectations. The family has a special bond. We had 30 girls ages 5-8 and never once did they lose interest. The 45 adults that attended could not thank us enough.  Hope to book another party soon!"

All of the performers are SO authentic and make you really feel as if you're in Hawaii!

"The high school I work for hired South Pacific Island Dancers to perform at our annual indoor festival that invites special needs young people from all over Philadelphia to spend a day with our high school students. From booking the dancers through Katie, to coordinating the day-of logistics, to an outstanding performance, this company was phenomenal to work with! All of the performers are SO authentic and make you really feel as if you're in Hawaii! Additionally, because of the nature of this particular event we had no time to show the performers beforehand the space they would be dancing in and wow--they made it all work! In the time slot they were booked for, they managed to engage the audience with a variety of dances AND several costume changes (the costumes are all made by the family/company owners! Such talent!) Best of all, they recruited audience members to join them on stage to dance with them. Beyond the talented performers, the professionalism of the entire group was really impressive. I highly recommend working with this dance/entertainment company for any event!"

"This is the second time we have had these dancers for an event and they NEVER DISAPPOINT! They are the sweetest family and are ALWAYS a crowd pleaser. I would recommend them to anyone looking to have a great time!"

-Kaitlyn Cacciola

South Pacific Island Dancers definitely went above and beyond, and we would recommend them to anyone!

"South Pacific Island Dancers were wonderful! The dancers were great, and everyone was so friendly and professional. We hired the company to perform at our wedding a week before the wedding and Katie was so responsive and made sure we had everything we needed. They even made a visit to our venue in Pennsylvania before the wedding. Everyone at our wedding absolutely loved the fire knife performance and all of the dances during our reception. All of our guests, and even some of the staff at the venue, were all on their feet and had their phones out taking pictures and video. They made our wedding night one to remember and were so great at getting the crowd involved. South Pacific Island Dancers definitely went above and beyond, and we would recommend them to anyone!"

-Stephanie Gima-DeLong

"The South Pacific Island Dancers recently did a fundraising event for our swim club. Not only were they fantastically talented, they followed through with everything we discussed, they were timely, friendly, and everyone loved them!!"
