She undergone training whilst in Hawaii and New York, and continued her classes while living in Sydney. In 2014, she travelled to Tahiti for training at the Artistic Conservatory of French Polynesia (Conservatoire Artistique de Polynésie Française) and obtained her Level 1 certificate in the International Ori Tahiti course. In 2016, Audrey travelled back to Tahiti for an extended period of time – within this time she performed at the Annual Gala CAPF Show with other dance students from the Conservatoire.Audrey is deeply passionate about sharing positive energy through the expression of Ori Tahiti, and is determined to continue spreading this art form in Sydney.

Marine Anna Alice Lechene

Marine was born in awesome and beautiful New Caledonia, a small French Pacific island East to Australia. From a French mother and a Chino-Tahitian father, art and culture came naturally in her education and she started drawing, playing piano and dancing very young.Tahitian dance has always been part of her life, from the large and warm Tahiti Nui studio in New-Caledonia where everything began to the cold-temperate room in France where islanders gathered when homesickness struck. Her teachers shared their love and passion for Ori Tahiti, promoting the corner stones of the Polynesian culture: love, family, generosity.Now living in Australia, Marine was lucky enough to find a small group animated by the same passion for Ori Tahiti and she directly called it home. Now it is her time to share and teach Ori Tahiti and she hopes Sydney will embrace this culture through the international language of dance.
