In California, she danced with Ka Ua Tuahine Polynesian Dance Company, an award winning ensemble based out of Berkeley California,  and competed twice in the world famous San Jose Tahiti Fete.  She was one of 7 student dancers invited to travel to Papeete, Tahiti in the summer of 2002 to study and perform with one of Tahiti’s preeminent dance ensembles, Ori Here Maohi Dance Company.  In 2005, she spent the year studying and performing with Fetia Tahiti in Paris, France.  The group gave performances in Paris and in Cannes. In 2003, she danced the lead part of the Shaman in Matthew Burtner’s large-scale multimedia work, Winter Raven.  She choreographed and performed for Matthew Burtner’s equally stunning, Kuik in 2005 at the Kursaal in San Sebastian Spain and again in 2006 at the Blackfriar theater in Staunton, VA .  She traveled with Semester at Sea for the spring 2009 semester as a dance professor, teaching indigenous dance styles and choreographies from 16 countries around the world.
