Ori Tahiti, with its rhythmic drum beats and fast hip/foot movements, is one of the most physically challenging cultural dance styles of the Pacific. Dedicated dancers gain strength and endurance right along with grace, poise and agility. Ora Nui's dancers also develop confidence, commitment and team work through weekly practices and public performances. Contact Ora Nui if you are interested in bringing a little piece of paradise to your live!
Ora Nui is owned and operated by Polynesian sister duo Roxie “Tevai” Gabriel and Charlie Okada. These sisters have made it their mission to share authentic Ori Tahiti (Tahitian dance), music, language and culture with the Vancouver and Portland communities. Since its opening in November of 2011 the school has grown leaps and bounds and now includes dance classes for girls ages 4 – adults and guys ages 6 – adults.
Roxie and Charlie also make it a point to spread the Hawaiian idea of Aloha with all they come into contact with. Respect, Integrity and ALOHA are values that have been instilled into them through their family and values they integrate into their studio and students. It is because of these ingredients that Ora Nui has become a home away from home for many of the dancers, an island paradise in the middle of Vancouver.
