Students from Pacific Heritage Academy came to dance a traditional Haka dance and try to teach the hosts. Little Sophie stole the show! She offered up a challenge to Actors Jason Mamoa and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Help the cause by sharing this video and tagging the actors. The academy wants to invite the Mamoa and The Rock to bring their own Haka dance for a dance face off at their annual Pacific Heritage Academy Gala on March 20, 2020.
