This video displays the difference in these movements. Some dancers call the Otamu a Temau or vice versa the most important thing is to know the correct movements and the technique of the dance. It really all depends on which instructor you learn from. Those dancers that do other forms of dancing have a little bit of difficulty in transitioning into these motions slight movements of the body or twisting of the hips create a totally different motion. Fusion dance is awesome but remember you are still representing a Culture when performing Tahitian Dance so it is good to know modern and traditional.
