Workshops by Level: Beginner
Duration: 6 or 12 hours
Participants: Beginner workshops are meant for individuals of all ages, but it is preferred that the participants have been previously introduced to Tahitian dance before participating in this workshop. Students must be above 12 years of age. I teach this workshop to children under the sole condition that they have taken initial classes with me or another teacher associated with either the Conservatoire in Papeete or myself.
Contents: body use instruction, five basic dance steps along with their names as taught by the Conservatoire, which may differ slightly from certain instructional videos.
A Level 1 Aparima percussion sequence is also taught. The definite program depends on the duration of the workshop. With the one-day workshop, only one choreographic sequence will be taught.
