Cultural guidance with a lasting impact

We developed the idea for our center based on the cultural necessity and lack of direct access to cultural resources within the U.S. Tahitian dance community. As a Tahitian-American family, we seek to improve the cultural understanding of indigenous Ma'ohi practices & traditions; by teaching our children & their peers to the language & art forms of their ancestors, they are reconnected to their island home 4,000+ miles across the Pacific Ocean.
