Pauline is formed in Tahitian dance with Joëlle, in France and in Tahiti. She attends to teacher’s training courses each year, since 2012 She is in a process of preservation of tradition but also creation and expression.
I am sure she will be able to pass down Tahitian dance in Berlin in a very good way, and she will do justice to Te Tuamarama.
Pauline is also a professional belly dancer. She is the choreographer and first dancer of Tangerine Company since 2009.
Andrea Claassen-Hansen settles our workshops in Germany. She worked as a dancer/singer/actress in musical theatre, film and TV production in all German-speaking countries, e.g. Deutsche Oper Berlin, Schauspielhaus Hamburg, Theater des Westens, Berlin, Bernhard-Theater Zurich, etc. She started as a chorus dancer, was promoted to dance captain, choreographer’s assistant and soloist.
Her aim is to promote Tahitian Dance in Germany.
