This class is for anyone with a desire to connect to kaupapa Māori through movement.
You will get to explore movement in a modern space using kapa haka forms and basics to modern Māori music. The focus is on mobility, rhythm and coordination in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.
Muscle & Bone
Muscle and Bone is a perfect class for building up movement skills with the support and fun of an energised group. You will gain strength and flexibility and improve your movement coordination skills. If you haven’t moved for a while we recommend this class as a great starting point!
This class is about unlocking and exploring the boundaries of your own movement and creative thinking potential with the support of the class group. This class employs somatic practice, meditation, improvisation, and contemporary technique to build a greater mind-body connection to de-stress mid-week, and help build body knowledge and awareness.
Denesa will share her unique artistic practice with you through group tasks, exercises, and discussion.
Inspired by the colorful and vibrant world of jazz, this class is all about having fun! Virginia will bring her contagious energy to end your week with a flare.
*Suitable for all experience levels.
Open Contemporary Technique & Choreography
Saturdays, 10:30 - 11:45am
Learn & experience contemporary dance techniques & principles, like flow, momentum, release, and how to get in and out of the floor with ease. Each tutor will share with you their own technical dance approach & personal movement vocabulary. You will learn short choreographic sequences and phrases.
Our tutors are highly skilled in adapting the class to suit your current level, so don’t let the word 'technique’ or having to remember choreography put you off, you will be guided and supported.
Kids Creative Movement
Saturdays 9.15 - 10.00am during school terms
Give your children a refreshing and creative start to their dance journey. MAP kids classes nurture your child's unique creative voice through movement. Using imagery and improvisation, Olivia will teach the ways dance allows them to engage and understand themselves and the world aroud them. No uniforms, no exams, just the joy of dance.
