From the Kalakeke PIDC website: Te Mana Ori started out as a Mock Tahitian Solo Competition hosted by Kalakeke Pacific Island Dance Company to help Soloists prepare for Ori Tahiti Competition. The event was called Kalakeke PIDC Tahitian Solo Showcase. This event became the stepping stone to the Ori Tahiti Solo Competition, helping Soloist prepare for the upcoming season. Then in 2011 we decided to transform our event into an Ori Tahiti Solo Competition. Our event will celebrate it’s 7th year as the first Ori Tahiti Solo Competition of the year. We are very excited to welcome Soloist from all over California, Nevada and as far as Florida. Our esteemed judges are Aunty Riki Liufau of Nonosina, Aunty Lorie Roldan-Almogela of Kawailehua and Tiana Liufau of Nonosina. Each judge has honored us with their vast experience and knowledge to help each Soloist gain insight on their Ori Tahiti technique and skill. Our Emcee will be non other than Kin Farrell of Island Kinections and Hosted by Kalakeke Pacific Island Dance Company and SCV Pacific Islander Culture and Arts, Inc. (501c3).
Kalakeke PIDC is dedicated to sharing the Culture and Dance of the Pacific Islands with All. In a Family “Ohana/Feti’i” environment that exudes Love, Caring and Fellowship, in a manner that is pleasing to God.
