On May 17 and 18, 2019 the Casino de Paris welcomes “Heiva I Paris 2019” that is a big festival and a European contest of Tahitian dance. On your marks, get set, move your hips!

For the sixth year in a row, festival “Heiva I Paris” will be held in the French capital, always hosted by Tahitian singer Ken Carlter. This year, the event will take place at the Casino de Paris.
Since 2014, every year, the City of Lights welcomes this big event devoted to Tahitian dance that is both a big European competition and a festival.
The edition 2019 of “Heiva I Paris” will be held on Friday May 17 and Saturday 18, 2019.

This year, over 200 dancers from 15 countries will face off each other with choreographies at the sound of the drums played by a 6-musician orchestra.


  • Friday May 17 at 8 p.m.: Group night
    Show with all the groups in competition, scattered in 2 categories: slow dance on recorded music (Mehura) and quick dance with live drums (O’tea).

  • Saturday May 18 at 2 p.m.: Solos, duets and children
    Show with all the solo adults or children, duets and ori/toa Haka (warrior dance) groups.

  • Saturday May 18 at 8 p.m.: Finals night
    Show with all the finalists of all solo and group adult categories. The best one will be awarded the “Heiva I Paris” prize.

This event devoted to Tahitian dance and culture will undoubtedly attract lots of people. For the previous years, it was sold-out. But this year, Tahitian culture has a new and charming ambassador, Vaimalama Chaves, Miss France 2019 who comes from Tahiti and every day she brings us closer to French Polynesia.
If you intend to attend the “Heiva I Paris” festival, don’t forget to book your tickets at the Casino de Paris.
