It was such a fantastic experience to teach dancing at Everness festival! I soaked in the sunshine and enjoyed the dance in the scenery where it really belongs to: under the sky, by the water, under the trees, on the grass, with the roaring of live drums. I experienced such open, carefree approach and trust and kindness from the participants, I was rather moved. We were loud. But it was worth it. 🙂 Sometimes there was 50 of us. It was wonderful, I am very grateful. I want many moments like this.
And those of you who joined me, please dance with us at our regular weekly classes too! Don’t forget, one of those participants, who share their impressions with us on our Tahiti Tánc facebook page will get a monthly pass. Because dancing together is GOOD.
Until September, practice with the help of this video:
‘Dear Teodóra, finally I found your card, so I can tell you about my feelings I returned from Everness. It’s been a long time, but I still feel the same enthusiasm. Your powerful presence and the vibes of your dancing made me stay for 4 days instead of the 1 I planned. I wouldn’t have missed one single class for any other program! 🙂 It was wonderful, joyful and what is more, a great workout! 🙂 I had no expectations. But even if I had had any, you would have exceeded them all! 🙂 I would like to thank you and Hunor for the ‘Tahitia journey’, and I hope to see you in autumn at your dancing classes 🙂 I wish you a beautiful indian summer,
My love and gratitude,
It was a pleasure to show what I learned in Tahiti. This video was taken Saturday evening, when we organized a mixed dance performance with the other dance teacher of Everness festival. This drum solo is called Oea Mata’i, meaning Wind dance. I learned this choreography with the Pupu Tuhaa Pae team, when we participated at the Heiva in 2014. This dance is just a little fraction of the legend of Tarei. In the story the main characters boat gets in trouble in the storm. This storm was originally performed by 40 dancers.
