The Tiki's was originally created in Monterrey Park. This was a location where it was considered to be one of the best places to visit, if you enjoy Tiki Carvings, Large Polynesian Shows, and history where many Tiki Fans can read and appreciate. The Tiki's was an oasis that had underground caves that had bars, volcanoes, many Polynesian Dancers, Canoes, and more. This was a location that was just as good as the Polynesian Cultural Center in Hawaii if not better. Till to this date there has never been a location or event company that can replicate this beautiful Polynesian Venue that redefined Destination Management over 30 years ago.
There are many Tiki Restaurants and Bars like Trader Vics, Don the Beachcomber, Kon Tiki, and more. They are till to this date are fun places to visit if you love the Tiki Pop Culture. The Tikis Location at Monterrey Park is considered to be the best and no other company including "Disneyland" has created an event location like the Tikis.
Judy Krenz was a dancer for the Tikis for many years. She was a Polynesian Dancer that performed for the Tikis from the beginning till the end. Judy later created a Polynesian Dance Group called the Manea Dancers.
Judy created the Manea Dancers after the closure of The Tikis. The Manea Dancers was created to continue to entertain people that love to watch the Polynesian Dancers.
20 years later, the Manea Dancers was managed by Bill Krenz. He is the son to Judy and grew up with the stories about hearing about how the Tiki's were an iconic location in Monterrey Park. Bill grew up and dreamed about resurrecting the dream that the Tiki's started in California.
The Manea Dancers under the new management of her son began the journey to redefine Luaus for parties, events, and more to save money to recreate the Tiki's back in California. The Manea Dancers was created to employ Polynesian Dancers to entertain guests to preserve culture and mentor people that they can impact lives to those that are watching.
The Manea Dancers is now one of the top Luau Entertainment Companies in California following lessons that originated from the Tiki's. This valuable message has inspired the Manea Dancers to entertain guests from Hotels, Homes, Schools, and other location to eventually open a location to recreate a new Tiki's Luau Entertainment Destination for people that love quality entertainment and food.
Currently, the Manea Dancers provides the following Dance Courses:
Tahitian Dancing (Men and Women)
Fire Dancing (Samoan Fire Knife "Siva Afi", Fire Poi, Fire Breathing, Fire Eating, and more"
The Manea Dance Classes are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday. Please feel free to call Judy or visit their website www.manea.net. They provided Polynesian Dance Classes in Lomita and soon in the Philippines.
