Two of the girls got up to dance a few times throughout the performance, but near the end they all jumped out of their formation to bust a move.
The Ute, not as choreographed, fierce and intense as the other dance performances, brought a bit of impromptu fun and humour to the night.
Mangaia’s Ute was one of eight performances on Monday night, for the third competition day at the auditorium for Te Maeva Nui 2015.
