‘Ori Tahiti Classes
Formerly prohibited by missionaries, the ‘Ori Tahiti that we call Tahitian dance is part of the cultural heritage of Polynesians. In Tahiti as well as in the other islands of French Polynesia, it is now the subject of individual competitions, as a couple and in groups. There are many schools out there teaching this world famous dance which is now also developing in mainland France.
At Reva i Tahiti, lessons are provided by Mareva Bouchaux, Best Aparima Dancer at Heiva i Paris 2015, who has been dancing since a very young age and has initiated many cultural and technical projects.
