Our classes are welcoming and energetic and teach authentic, contemporary Tahitian dance. We offer a weeklybeginner to intermediate class for dancers learning and strengthening their basics, an advanced level class for dancers with more experience in Tahitian dance, and a thirty minute mixed-level technique session for both classes to dance together.
Beginner/Intermediate classes: 6:30-7:30pm
Our beginner/intermediate class requires no experience and coaches you step-by-step through the basics of Tahitian dance, fun combinations, and exciting choreography. You can drop in for an individual class or sign up for a month at a time.
New! All-Levels Technique Session: 7:30-8pm
In our technique session, you'll focus intensively on the fundamentals of Tahitian dance, strengthening your mastery of the building blocks of the dance. We also love that this session gives our dancers of all levels a chance to dance together! (This session is an optional add-on to our Beginner/Intermediate class, but we highly recommend it for all dancers.)
In our advanced session, you'll start with the mixed-level technique session to keep up a strong foundation. We then work on fun combos and exceptional ote'a and aparima choreography from our expert choreographers.
