The Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company is now touring the South Pacific, with weeklong engagements in Pago Pago, American Samoa and Honolulu, Hawaii. In each location they teach in schools and perform concerts. For company member James Irvine its a homecoming, since he is from Pago Pago.
The company has been dancing in Hawaii regularly since 1984, sponsored by the Hawaii State Department of Education. In Pago Pago their sponsor is the Consortium for Pacific Arts and Cultures.
