Our culture is alive, it is in us and it is our mission to share it abroad and to future generations. 

In this 2.5 hours long workshop you’ll be completely immersed in Tahitian culture. Hinatea (live from Tahiti) will guide us through the understanding of the cultural concepts lying under the lyrics of a beautiful tahitian song. Marine will then teach us graceful and meaningful movements in a choreography to interpret this song.

Hinatea Colombani from Papara, Tahiti is the founder and director of the Cultural Centre ‘Arioi and tahitian dance school Matehaunui. Hinatea’s mission is to promote polynesian culture worldwide. She is an expert, passionate about tahitian culture, traditions and ancestral polynesian lifestyles. She is also committed to the social and solidarity economy and to a sustainable tourism: 10% of the price of the experiences is donated to an association that guarantee an access to cultural activities for disadvantaged children.

Marine Lechenè  was born in beautiful New-Caledonia, a small French Pacific island East to Australia. ‘Ori Tahiti, Tahitian dance, has always been part of her life and through it she loves to promote the corner stones of the Polynesian culture: love, respect, and generosity.

I have just commenced a class at Dance Central and from the first moment when I called to inquire about classes it has been a very easy and pleasant experience. All my questions were answered fully, I was called back regarding a query almost immediately, the online booking process was a breeze and the class I took was perfect. The staff are all very friendly and helpful which made me feel comfortable when I first walked in to start my class. I would recommend Dance Central as a great place to join, enjoy and to feel a part of a really warm relaxed atmosphere.
