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 movements. 

Class is catered to both beginner and intermediate level.

This class is grounded in rich culture and contemporary meaning, where the movements are not only great for our physical health, but the stories in the music and moves are good for our mind, heart and soul! Marine moves with grace and speaks with clarity. She provides tips for beginners and challenges for those more advanced. Thank you for a beautiful class Marine and DanceCentralSydney! Can we have this every week?
