Ori Tahiti teacher’s training course level four

This course is the last level of the teacher’s training course I propose. We will learn how to build a whole performace from a legend, a tale, or a contemporary text or topic.

Of course we will train and dance a few time in the morning .

We now have more and more dance contests : soloist or group contest, in many countries around the world.

Generaly, teams who enter the competition have to dance to a text , a theme, no matter if it is a very short or a longer one.

The last part of the teacher’s course , level 4, is made up of learning how to break down your text into the many parts of a whole performance. no matter how long it is, no matter if it is not in tahitian language.

We will learn how make it according to circumstances, constraints , and committment.

The details of the contents of the course has been released on the facebook wall of our group.
You can download it. It is still in french. Should you need more informations, please get in touch with me.
