Be taken on a rhythmic journey to French Polynesia with the beautiful ancestral dance of Ori Tahiti. You will learn the fundamental steps in both fast (O’tea) and slow (Aparima) styles, and be able to apply the steps you learn to choreography in each class. The body movements in Ori Tahiti are a means of personal expression, through hip and hand movement. Every class is catered to both beginner and intermediate level.

The class was great. It is very motivating to do something new, and to learn it LIVE with a group of people.

Lighting, clear sound and internet connection on DC’s end made it the perfect chance to connect and feel like I’m in the studio dancing with everyone! Marine was clear in her instructions so I could improve on technique and notice details of different body parts. It was professional yet casual, which made it feel real and comfortable! Thank you!!

Thank you for a wonderful introduction to Ori Tahiti! I loved the structure of the class- building up our ability through drilling the different movements of the dance. You are also a lovely and enthusiastic teacher. Looking forward to the next class!
