In Tahitian dance, the “tamau” is the most basic step that all others build upon, it’s simple, but absolutely essential. For your contribution we say “Mauruuru Roa!” or “Thank you!”, with a hand written note of appreciation along with a professionally photographed company performance photo. We will also include your name in the “Friends of Aveia - Tamau” section of our printed programs.
The “pa’oti” is an exciting men’s step characterized by rapid opening and closing of the knees, or “scissoring” of the legs. We would love to offer you an autographed, professionally photographed poster of one of our dancers. We will also gladly include your name in the “Friends of Aveia - Pa’oti” section of our printed programs.
The Ote’a is the most widely known, fast-paced, Tahitian group dance accompanied by a thrilling drum orchestra. For your generosity we will happily send you a DVD of our performance. Your name will also be included in our printed programs in the “Friends of Aveia - Ote’a” section.
The word “Ora” is Tahitian for life. The life of the Polynesian people is perpetuated through song and dance. For your gift, we eagerly offer you a complimentary dance class, whether in person if you’re in the NY state area, or online otherwise. Your name will be recorded in the Friends of Aveia - Ora” section of our printed programs.
More commonly known as a “sarong”, “pareu” is the word Tahitians use for this multifaceted cloth. It has become a recognized symbol of Polynesia. For your generous contribution we’d like to offer all the gifts as the Tamau, Paoti, Otea, and Ora, plus a pareu and shell lei to wear at you next class. You name will be listed in the “Friends of Aveia - Pareu” section of our printed programs and also on our company website.
"Pahu arata’i” is the lead drum in a Tahitian drum orchestra. It's the heartbeat. For your contribution we provide access to online instructional videos. Send a video of you dancing and receive a critique. You receive the same percs as the Tamau, Paoti, Otea, Ora, and Pareu and your name in our programs and on our website.
