Created in 2004, the Hura Tapairu is a dancing competition for small dance troupes (less than 30 dancers on stage) presenting original performances. It is held in Tahiti each year in November.

A magnificent festival of traditional Polynesian dancing

The Hura Tapairu has become the second most popular dancing competition in French Polynesia after the Heiva i Tahiti. The competition is unique with choreography less traditional than the Heiva. The modern music and the originality of the costumes is much appreciated by the Polynesian public. Some overseas ori tahiti dance troupes travel to Tahiti just to take part in the competition.
