KAPA HAKA WITH KRYSTAL CLARKE
Studio 5, Te Auaha
The Human Dance Kapa Haka classes will allow participants to learn basic techniques and beginner level waiata (song), waiata-a-ringa (action song), and haka. Each month will have a different learning focus, so classes are booked separately for each month. Our experienced tutor Krystal Clarke will share her knowledge behind each movement and break it down in a way that all types of learners can understand.
This class is the perfect first introduction to the Māori performing arts repertoire, as each class will slowly build knowledge of the appropriate techniques and gestures within different types of waiata and haka. Through learning dance, participants will also develop an understanding of te ao Māori and the correct application of tikanga by learning of the origins behind different waiata and haka within the Kapa Haka repertoire. Krystal’s Kapa Haka students will learn that the performing arts are much more than just song and dance!
This class is suitable for adult dancers and is taught at an introductory level.
Dates: 8/3, 15/3, 22/3, 29/3
Single class: $15 Month pass: $52
OPEN CONTEMPORARY WITH GEORGIA BEECHEY
Studio 3&4, Te Auaha
Hannah's classes are focused on the intention of 'taking up space' - both physically and spatially as we travel across the room, and expand through our limbs and wind in and out of the floor, but more importantly taking up space personally and energetically; finding a sense of groundedness, confidence and ownership in the space you occupy and the way in which YOU wish to move your body in that space. Classes involve freeform warm-ups to get the body used to moving in and out of the floor, some good ol' contemporary 101 exercises to switch on our technique before exploding into high-energy phrases to get our sweat on, with lots of options for easier or more challenging versions depending on where your body is at.
