Rarotonga’s leading innovative cultural dance troupe specialising in traditional dance, drums and music from the Cook Islands.
We feature a strong team of 20 drummers + musicians, 15 female dancers and 15 male dancers, with more talented dancers intraining! Our costumes are inspired by the colours of the Pacific and are made from natural fibre including wild‐hibiscus bark, assorted feathers, pearl shell, bamboo and so much more. Each performance features a costume change providing an eclectic presentation of colour and creativity.
Akirata Cultural Dance Troupe is guaranteed to ‘wow’ any crowd at any event, be it a small wedding ceremony, a corporate event, or a large umukai feast.
