Alana’s class will focus on exploring relationship to the floor, to the studio space and to the other
bodies around us. There is likely to be lots of rolling, sliding, jumping, fun moves, and going upside
down in various ways along to some banging tunes. Somatic improvisational tasks will also be
offered as a way to warm into your body and explore your own self inquiry and awareness through
movement.

KAPA HAKA IN AUGUST 

​Te Auaha Studios


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 reo 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 non-dancers, taught at an introductory level.
