Heiva & Tahiti Fete

Many of the Tahitian dance groups are constantly working on their presentations and shows. One of the most exciting and exotic ways for people to see this is at the growing number of Heiva, Tahiti Fete, and festivals featuring Tahitian dance. The highlight of these festive events is undoubtedly the group otea presentations. The pulsing drums, the blur of the hip shaking, intoxicating tropical flower scents, and the unmistakable energetic performance that is Tahitian dance are brought together here. If you have an event and would like it listed, let us know. Feel free to explore our growing collection of information and sources of the dance and culture of Tahiti including our directory of Tahitian dance groups.
