Album Notes

TAHITIAN DANCE is the most exciting and popular of all Polynesian dances. It is the original dance of the revolving hips in the grass skirt, the south seas dance of paradise that travelers have been writing about for decades. Here is a fun instructional film made for both the male and female dancer. A complete & comprehensive film for the child & the adult ranging from the novice to the professional. Now you can learn how to dance Tahitian, the "Ori Tahiti", in these easy step-by-step lessons.

You will learn:

  • the two main types of Tahitian dance -- the ote`a and the aparima
  • very basic steps to the advance form: 5 male steps; 6 female steps
  • essential information on costuming, instrumentation & dance composition
  • 5 Tahitian dance routines

Each song is taught by a phrase or drum pattern that has been slowed down for learning purposes. At the end of the lesson, everyone will be dancing at the performance speed.

"Mirror image" is used in all lessons, allowing the dancer to follow each lesson in a mirror-like fashion.
