Year 8s have been looking at dances from all over the world, including the Greek Sirtaki, Haka and Brazilian Capoeira.
Students have been concentrating on basing their dances around important key characteristics of the Dance, such as dancing in line for the Greek Sirtaki.
Here are some photos of the students 'visiting' New Zealand to study the Haka, a dance that has become popular due to the All Blacks. All students really got on board with the Haka, and incorporated the major characteristics such as loud chanting, agressive facial expressions and foot stamping.
Here are some entertaining performances!
