DUE TO LOW NUMBERS THIS CLASS HAS BEEN POSTPONED TILL NEXT TERM

In these sessions you’ll discover the particular movements and gesture of hips, legs and hands, which to tell a tale for audiences. Explore Cook Islands identity and inspirational tales of the ocean, birds or flowers, but also human emotions through dance and music. These sessions will finish with a live performance event for Cook Islands Language Week in early August. Register now to be a part of this performance series and practice your technique.
