PAYING TRIBUTE TO TRADITIONAL CULTURE
Thirty-six years after its creation, the school comprises today more than 1,500 students, including the classical and traditional departments, and 623 students only for ‘ori Tahiti. The school takes pride in its status of first school of performing arts in the country and the keeper of tradition being passed on.
Through the Grand Gala, taking place between the end of the Dance School Heiva and the start of the major groups Heiva, the Conservatory presents the achievement of the work done by teachers and students, thus celebrating traditional arts.
Almost 600 students perform on the stage of To’ata, sharing their discipline and the knowledge they preciously acquired all over the year. During that evening, the spectators may admire, among the various performances, either in group or in solo, high level dancers, percussion bands, Ukulele ensembles, students in Orero and the 200 students in traditional singing. The classical department, as every year, will make some appearances, which will be integrated into that outstanding show.
Lastly, this is a way for each student to express their love for traditional culture and the importance to preserve it, to enhance it, but most of all, to spread it. This pays tribute to our heritage, which is tackled through original themes and brought to the stage with intense emotion.
