Polynesian Dance Workshops with Claire and Maile 2017

10-11 November, we will have the pleasure to welcome Claire and Maile in Budapest, to organize 4 different Polynesian dance workshops! The workshops cover 4 dance genres based on similar cultural traditions, but they differ in theme and dynamics. The Tahitian drum solo is an extremely dynamic dance, it requires intense hip work and good coordination. While the Tahitian aparima is a more melodic, lyrical dance with a choreography that tells a story. It is a bit similar to the Hawaiian Hula dances. The haka is a traditional war dance from Aotearoa (New-Zealand). It became renowned thanks to the New […]

We start in September 2017

Kedves Táncosok! Mi már alig vártuk, hogy újrakezdődjenek a tanfolyamok, és a nyári szünetben dolgozunk rajta, hogy minél többet táncolhassunk! A táblázatban találjátok az őszi órarendet:   Szeptembertől két kezdő csoport indult: hétfőn és kedden este. A haladó órák változatlanul csütörtökönként vannak. Ezeken a csoportos órákon technikát és koreográfiát is tanulunk. Újdonság a tavalyi évhez képest a csütörtöki “tahiti workout”, amely egy 60 perces alkalmat takar, ahol kizárólag a tahiti tánc alapmozdulatait gyakoroljuk. Ez jó lehetőség a technikátok tökéletesítésére, az állóképességetek fejlesztésére, valamint az újonnan csatlakozóknak is alkalmat ad a gyors felzárkózáshoz, és a mozdulatok aprólékos elemzéséhez is. Erre az […]

HEIVA 2017

In Tahiti the first 2 weeks of July is all about the Heiva dancing competition. During these weeks the Toata (the central stadium) gets filled up completely and roars every evening with singing, music and drumming. The whole island goes crazy about the festival, since everyone has at least one cousin participating. The participants all have to meet serious criteria regarding their costumes and the raw materials and fabrics they use to make them; the type of dances the show includes (female dance for drum rhythms, male dance for drum rhythms, female and male solo dancers, finale including all the […]

Everness Festival 2017

We had such a fantastic weekend in Alsóörs! We got the chance to dance by the beautiful Lake Balaton, while enjoying the sunshine and the live drums. We had workshops every day, where we learned the basic hip moves of the Tahitian female dance through the steps of a solo choreography. In the meantime I also tried to share as much of the traditions and the wisdom of this dance as I could. The first day Hunor’s drum workshop was fully booked, so from the second day we had more and more drummers encouraging the dancers, who always find it […]

After Our Tahitian Summer Show

Such performances like the one yesterday are milestones in my life. Just like my very first (and so far the last..) solo dance competition at Heiva in Tahiti and some other challenges that I anticipated with fear and excitement and a lot of preparation. These moments are my stepping stones forward self-acceptance, self-confidence, faith and hope and I am grateful to the dance for taking me along this path.   My heart is honestly filled with gratitude. This show turned out to be such a challenge, I had doubts at the beginning. But then the girls (who had been my […]
