Teva Oriata

Teva is the name of the Tahitian chief foretold to be born in rain and wind. Whereever Teva went, so did the wind and the rain. Thus, the same applies to Oregon's only Tahitian dance troupe and it's dancers; we are the Tevas, people of the calming and graceful rain yet strong and moving wind.

Teva Oriata is Portland's only authentic Tahitian dance studio, and award winning hula wahine at the 2017 Hapa Haole Hula Competition.
