Our first day in Tahiti feels like months ago! 😆 I loved that from the moment we landed we were immediately faced with culture. Shout out to the dancer and musicians/singers for greeting us at 5am with beautiful song and movement.🌺 . . . #papeete #tahiti #faaa #teahonui #opportunityofalifetime #culturalimmersion #tupunakultur #oritahiti #tahitiandance #orisisters #travel #travelchronicles

I celebrated true independence on Sunday when, once again, I got to celebrate and be all up in my roots by seeing some childhood legends (and a new legend in the making) on stage at Reggae Night at the Hollywood Bowl. Protoje, Cocoa Tea @cocoa_tea13 , and Mr. Sweetness himself Beres Hammond @bereshammond set my soul on fire and had me yearning for home bad bad! When mi tell yu seh mi glad bag buss when Beres reach di stage, man! Raas! Mi luv him cyan dun!🙌🏽❤️💛💚. All I know is that mi proud to backside to be Jamaican! ✊🏽🇯🇲🤗......and let me also add, that to see these legends STILL rocking the stage with so much pure and crystal clear joy and energy brought tears to my eyes. THAT is what the youngsters call #goals fi real! Thank you so so much again, @mygirlguru ! So happy to continue this fun tradition!😁 . . #reggaenight #hollywoodbowl @hollywoodbowl @protoje #livinglegends #proud #gladbagbuss #joy #proudjamaican
It was a long long day; but I am so thankful I was able to participate in HURA TAHITI 2018 (@huratahiti )! Last year I was a participant cheering on my fellow ori sisters and yesterday, thanks to the unparalleled leadership and guidance of my teacher @dancewithleolani , special guidance from @anaherapatel , @kendallkanoa and @mermaid_mama , and the encouragement of my @teahonui family, I was a participant. Even though I’ve been a dancer since the age of 4, I only started ori Tahiti 4 years ago which is a completely different, nuanced style. This was my third competition but my nerves felt like it was the first. During the finals round I stumbled. I died a thousand deaths on the inside but quickly said to myself, “Stay regal, Sundra, and own this damn space no matter what til you walk off this stage!” I wanted to cry but quickly recovered despite the thousand deaths happening. With that in mind, I am completely humbled and thankful to have come home with this🏆🥇. It taught me a HUGE lesson—that even when we stumble, and it feels shitty, it doesn’t mean all hope is lost. 🙏🏽And, I must say, I’m particularly proud to represent the women and mamas over 40!✊🏽 It’s true, 40 is the new 20!😆 #actlikeyouknow 😜 Māuruuru roa to all the incredible judges, staff, vendors, spectators, my ori sisters who participated and who came to support, and fellow competitors for the love and mana! 🌺🤙🏽 . . #teahonui #tamahine #teahonuivahine #soloists #tahitiandancer #dancers #fun #cerritoscollege #tahitiandancers #ori #huratahiti #huratahiti2018 #oritahiti #orifamily #dance #solos #cerritoscollege #vahine #keiki #iaorana #la #socal #orisisters #solocompetition #polynesiandance #polynesiandancers #actor #actress #jamaican
I could dance this dance all day everyday and never get tired of it. It’s hands down one of if not the favorite of so many of us in Te Aho Nui. “Te Tama Ma’ohi” , a love song from a parent to a child. 💚💙💜 I think about my boys each time I do this dance and each time I tear up. This is from our performance last weekend at the SAMO Pier.🏄🏽‍♀️🌺 **I’m on the stage to your left😉** . . . . #teahonui #teahonuivahine #teahonuitamahine #weekendfun #beachday #oritahiti #ori #la #socal #santamonica #showday #luau #aloha #iaorana #santamonicapier #pier360 #luauseason #festival #tahitiandancers #samo #samopier #smpier360 #thingstodoinla #laevents #polynesiandancers #tahitiandanceschool #pacificpark #california @mevina_official @teahonui
Sorry not sorry for the slew of photos—I love my ori Tahiti/Tahitian dance family so much, I sometimes feel my heart will burst! Leolani @dancewithleolani , I hope you truly know the power in what you’ve created with Te Aho Nui. It is not at all just a dance school—it’s a second home, refuge, and sanctuary to all of us. Thank you for gifting us with that.🌺💛 . . . #oritahiti #teahonui #teahonuivahine #teahonuitamahine #weekendfun #beachday #oritahiti #ori #la #socal #santamonica #showday #luau #aloha #iaorana #pier360 #luauseason #festival #tahitiandancers #polynesiandancers #tahitiandanceschool #california #jamaicangirl #loveoftwoislands #actor #blackfemalemartialartist #nevertoolatetofindinspiration #pier360 #samopier #liveyourbestlife #now

End of junior year - Prom time. ✨ Yes, I cried. A lot. These are such a great group of kids; they really are. Their friendships are strong and true, and they are so very fortunate to have each other.....I saw them all together looking so beautiful and grown up and just couldn’t stop the rush of emotion and tears from falling. Looking like true California golden children⭐️ I swear, this boy of mine....gets me all in my feelings every single time. If I didn’t know I had a heart in my body I would swear up and down he was it. Yeah....he is. . . #prom #lilaprom2018 #mybabyboy #mysonshine #thislightofmine #proudmom #hesthebestpartofme
