The dance festival launched its inaugural season at the Mangere Arts Centre in June 2016 where a number of exceptional Pacific dance artistes performed a range of innovative performance works.


The 2016 festival included works from: Tupua Tigafua, Leki Bourke, Hadleigh Pouesi, Jahra Wasasala, Nikki Upoko, Katerina Fatupaito with special guest performance by Julia Mage'au Gray and Le Moana.
