CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

From our littlest dancers to our most experienced, there is a class here for every age and skill level.

PUAITI

Young Girls Beginner and Intermediate Class

Ages 2 - 12 years old

This is a fun class for little girls who love to dance every time music comes on. These little ladies learn the basics of Tahitian dance and language through fun games, take-home worksheets and interacting with fellow dancers and their instructors. Puaiti girls are separated into beginner and intermediate classes.

Dancers 4 years old and under will need to have a parent that will participate in class with them to help learn basics, and encourage participation.

PURAU

Women's Beginner Class

Ages 13 - Adult

A slower class for women who have never danced before. This class introduces them to very basic Tahitian dance movements/techniques, and the Tahitian vocabulary associated with it. These classes will also teach a dancer how to control their bodies while loosening up the hips and strengthening core, leg and arm muscles.

TIARE

This class is strictly for students who have mastered all basic Tahitian techniques and are working on honing advanced dance techniques.
