“Great music and dancing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

We went to this show only because the Lonely Planet guide insisted a traditional dance show was a must do on the island and we really had no idea what to expect. What we got was an amazing hour of entertainment for $15. The music and dancing are delightful and engaging. The length of the show is just about right though more would be better than less.

As others have mentioned, crowd participation is part of the show but the performers are not at all pushy - if one declines an invitation to participate they quickly and politely move to another person.

The show starts at 9pm. We arrived at 8:30 and the seats were relatively empty but it filled up quickly. We sat in the slightly elevated stands in the back which I think provides the best view.

In sum, Lonely Planet got it right, a visit to Easter Island without taking in one of these shows would not be complete.

“Energetic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

Energetic and sensual! And it doesn't hurt that the dancers are pleasing to the eyes as well! ;p It is located at the main road in the town and cost about CLP15,000. Be there at least 30mins or an hour early to get the best seat.

“First-class performance by first-class dancers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

This show was one of our highlights. The performance was energetic and the dancers were really into giving their best. All the dancers were good looking and had nicely-built bodies. The dance was enthralling and I loved the way they got the audience involved. My wife was among the lucky ones to be called on the stage and she had a ball gyrating with the muscular dancers! I would highly recommend this show - entertaining for all ages!,

“Superb perforance, great dancers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

Excellent Polynesian dancers and well-designed show. Incredibly athletic performers whose perfection and stamina would be hard to match anywhere, much less on this remote paradise.
