The following day, Sunday March 18th, the Premier Panteras took a trip to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. Not only did they gain a knowledge of World War II, but also got the chance to perform on the USS Missouri. The Premier Panteras performed a variety of routines they learned throughout the fall season, as well as some solos from the previous competition.

 

Later that night, the Panteras participated in a traditional Hawaiian Luau! They had the opportunity to taste several foods of the Hawaiian culture such as live roasted pig, poi, and a lot of fresh pineapple! Along with many delicious food, the Panteras watched a traditional Hawaiian performance and even learned how to hoola!

 

The Premier Panteras had a fabulous time in the state of Hawaii! They experienced many cultural events and learned a great deal about Hawaiian culture. Definitely a trip to remember for this dance team!
