Founded in 2009, Pacific Rhythm is a family-owned and operated Polynesian dance group. We are the only group around that is made solely of a family of six . . . Dad, Mom, and four children!
Mika (the Chief of the family) is originally from the islands of Western Samoa. He grew up with music and dancing as it is an i
important part of the culture. He moved from Samoa at the age of
22 to attend college in Hawaii. There he met Tiffany and they were
married. Mika is the emcee, a dancer, and a fire dancer.
Tiffany (the Mom and costume designer) was born and raised in
the Pennsylvania and West Virginia areas. She has always loved
the Polynesian culture and was very blessed to marry into it! Tiffany has been dancing since 2000. She also makes all the family's costumes.
