Tongan Ballerina to perform on King’s coronation

1

A young Tongan ballerina in Salt Lake City, Utah would perform on His Majesty King Tupou VI’s coronation in July.

Eliana Vaha’i, 13, claimed “to be the first Tongan ballerina to train at the prestigious Ballet West Academy” would perform the ballet dance for thousands who would be in Tonga during the coronation.

She comes from Kolonga, Tongatapu and she has a dream “to establish the Kingdom’s first ballet school and company”.

A statement says, Eliana was one of the founders and directors of the “Island Daughters, a community service organization for young Tongan women that” has a mission to honor the past, connect to the present, and build the future”.
