Grateful for this opportunity. First musical theatre down & many more to go.

☀️ TAMURE TUESDAY☀️

They say, find people who feel like sunlight.

Well, lucky me, I dance with them.

Hi, we PROUDLY dance for Te Fano O Te Ra.

Personally, I’m so excited to experience our Ori journeys together.

As much as you see pretty pictures of the most exotic dancers all over,

It’s not pretty behind the scenes.

There’s sweat,
The ugly faces you usually show the drummers when you’re tired. 😂😂

The callus on our feet cause every good dancer has those.

Thighs clapping cause faarapus gotta stay so fire.

I love this girls determination.

That inspires ME 😍☀️

So tysm to my Ori sister @_moani.keala_

I’m so excited for our journeys.

• MONDAY •

I would’ve NEVERR in my life made an “Ori Tahiti” diary of my comeback as a dancer.

Cause that’s just embarrassing 😭

This was truly made by inspiration under our director.

I’ve stopped dancing and would come back several times way back when,

but the biggest factor that makes this comeback different, I’m coming back as a postpartum dancer. Which is brand new to me, and in an optimistic view, humbling, because I need to re-learn my foundation all over again.

in the beginning of coming back, watching how I dance was disappointing, discouraging and DIS—-ain’t it 😂

because in my humble opinion,

I’ve seen how I could dance in the past.

And well now,

Sis can have all the seats cause, not quite sweetie 😂

If there’s anything I would say to the dancer next to me,
share your videos.
Record your progress.
Share your journey.

Your goal should be to beat the dancer you face in the mirror every morning.

And if you were to compete in a solo completion, it’s your solo this year vs your solo next year.

Would you place?
Would you see a huge difference?
Or would you be the same dancer every year.

Beat yourself.
Don’t beat yourself up.

The challenge will always be

YOU vs YOU.

And rn I’m catching all the smoke from a year ago me.
😂

SHARE YOUR VIDEOS.

And a message to my TFOTR captains!

Set the new challenge,

I’m coming!

I missed two days of training this week,

Slow progress is mo’bettah than no progress. 😂💁🏽‍♀️

Have a great rest of the week!

Stay committed!

Couple years ago this day, my hubs and I took a Cali trip.

Showing him the OG HOTR studio was priority. 😂😍

This was a throwback to our prime when we were prepping to compete in Reno.

Here’s a glimpse of what it looked like.

But what you don’t see is how many times we had to do it again because ‘xyz’ wasn’t right.

Again, because someone missed formation.

Again, because it wasn’t on beat.

And Lord forbid,

Again, because someone scoffed 😭😂

It might be a weird thing to miss.

But I miss those lectures. 😭

Basically the voices I hear in my head when I’m training.

Again, until I get it right.

Not there yet, not even close.

But there’s def been progression within the last two weeks.

This is your reminder to:

Keep going!

• Wednesday •

Long Term Goal: out-do and surpass the dancer I was pre-baby.

Tasks to meet Objective/Goal:

• Keeping the core engaged
• Pushing + Maintaining fa’arapu to create consistent flow and speed, instead of choppy high speeds to high lows
• Lifting the hips for a fuller + clean fa’arapu

Challenging? Yes.
Doable? Also yes.

For those joining me in my Ori Tahiti journey with TFOTR + HOTR,

Here’s a big warm:

Talofa • Aloha • Ia orana • Hello! 🌺

If you’d like a proper and thorough introduction, you can hit my “Welcome” highlight!

Moving forward, all level dancers know or will learn the biggest key to great dancing in Ori Tahiti is a strong and engaged core from start to finish.

Two months ago I’d been blessed and had given birth to a beautiful baby girl; causing my abdominals to separate and my core to push all the way back.

This is my humble beginning where you’ll see my personal and in studio training of re-strengthening technique, stamina and preserving the integrity of Ori Tahiti under Te Fano O Te Ra.

Thank you for joining me!
Let’s Ori!

Since 1988 Hitia O Te Ra has been dedicated to sharing the beauty of Polynesia through cultural and performing arts.

It was a dream of my father, Alex Tekurio, to open up his own studio and to produce dancers that would love and appreciate his culture as much as he did. A few months before he passed he told me he wanted to continue the group for his grandchildren. That was his mission then and it’s still my goal now. So, he decided to bless us with a new name. A group name that would remind his children and grandchildren that he will always be with them.

Our new group name, that we will be known as in Southern Utah and was given to us by our dad is TE FANO O TE RA (The voyage of the sun) and in the words of my father, “The sun is felt everywhere...wherever my grandchildren go, I’ll be like the sun. I’ll always be there.”

Hiti’a o te ra (The Rising of the Sun) was a dream that came to pass in this life for my dad. Te Fano O Te Ra will be his legacy.

We will always be #HOTR. Love you dad.

Uncle's service was beautiful this weekend.

It was good to see past, present and future dancers of Hitia O Te Ra. Most of us wouldn't have known eachother or have the relationships we have now if it wasn't for him. I am beyond blessed to have had the opportunity to go out to St. George and be a part of his life celebration. Thank you Auntie Tanya and the Tekurio family for sharing your father with Thousands of us!Mauruuru Roa Uncle Alex.
