ABOUT 

Te Aho Nui
Tahitian Dance School​

Te Aho Nui is a Los Angeles-based Tahitian dance school and Luau entertainment troupe under the direction of Leolani Gallardo. In Reo Tahiti (the language of Tahiti) 'Te Aho' means 'breath,' and, 'Nui' means great or grand. 'Te Aho Nui' means deep breath or breathe deep.

 

This name represents life and growth. Thank you Hinavai Reveino, the winner of the Best Female Solo Dancer of the Heiva i Tahiti 2015, for gifting us with this name. 

 

Leolani Gallardo has over 25 years of experience in Polynesian dance, training and performing with the most prestigious teachers and troupes. After touring worldwide to perform and teach, she returned to her home city of Los Angeles, California, and finally opened her own Tahitian dance school, Te Aho Nui, in 2016. Leolani has a fun and powerful way of teaching that creates a positive learning atmosphere for all of her students to feel welcome. 

Experience authentic and modern dance moves from Tahiti and be inspired by this rich cultural art form!
