Learn the dances of the Polynesian islands, including Hawaiian hula and Tahitian o’tea.
Hula is an ancient Hawaiian art form, which rhythmically tells a story through dance and hand movements.
The Tahitian o’tea is a very fast drum dance, done using rapid hip movements. In modern day Tahiti, it is performed at festivals and events, but it originated as a warrior dance.
Students will learn basic movements used in Hawaiian and Tahitian dancing, proper dance technique, and build stamina and endurance. Be prepared to dance with flowing arms and swaying hips... And a little bit of sweat too!
