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.

Dates: 1/4, 8/4, 15/4, 22/4, 29/4

FRIDAYS, 6:30- 8PM

Full Swing Dance Studio, Cuba Street

Balfolk is a popular dance movement that has re-invented traditional European social dance
forms and music as a vibrant dance experience. The emphasis is on social dance rather
than performance, full of fun interactions leaving plenty of room for variations. Partner
dances like Waltz, Mazurka, Scottish and Polka sit alongside group Contra-dances, Circle
dances and Mixers (dances structured to rotate partners) that are simple to learn and invite
improvisation. Suitable for all levels of physical disposition.
During the classes, we will share group dances such as Circle Circassian, Chappelloise,
Bourree, Rondeaux, as well as Portuguese, Spanish, Greek and Israeli, suggesting possible
variations. We will also introduce how to lead and follow to build connection in partner
dances which make the Balfolk movement truly unique.

You can find more about the Balfolk movement in the documentary Le Gran Ball (2018) that
shows how one of the oldest traditional Balls in Europe has evolved through times​​​
