They didn´t need to travel far abroad to feel like in Hawaii for a while. The first Saturday of November was full of ladies with flower necklaces and gentlemen with the same pattern on their shorts who enjoyed a tropical summer day in pools and accumulated positive energy during an amazing Batida drummer show. Last but not least, they improved their Hawaiian dancing skills too.
Hawaiian dances are not only ordinary body movements. They express stories, feelings, the past and present of people who live on the Hawaiian Islands. Legend has it that Laka, the goddess of Hula, was travelling around the islands and sharing the dance with all people who wanted to learn it. “Our park animators were doing the same in Tatralandia on Saturday, teaching everybody around,” explained Ivana Gežíková, the water park brand manager.
And when the sun went down in the tropical paradise, all dancers assembled and showed what they had learned. Igor Svítok, the commissioner of the Slovak Book of Records was watching them carefully. “It was 321 people, aka record holders at the Hawaii & Halloween Party performing Hawaiian dances collectively. The plan was to set a record and it was a success. We need to thank all our park visitors for not being shy and taking part in our mass dance,” concluded I. Gežíková.
