About the Event

To dance and move in connection with nature.

To take time to appreciate that which holds us connects us and inspires us.

In this weekend workshop, nature is our leader. 

Under the seasonal change of Beltane, we feel the shifting energies and dance!

YES, full of our passion and power!!

For you who wish to dive deeper // our weekend kaupapa. 

This is the third year we have been dancing and creating with the elements.

Our first year we touched deeply to which element connected to us. 

In our second year, we embodied deeply how the elements are part of us. 

This year we give back!

We give back through dance and prayer, 

We give back through ritual and tending,

We give back through deep meditation, 

We give back through clear intentions and purpose.

This is our world and it really is time to care back. 

Movement as mihi. 

Hine Moana and Tangaroa - Water - Wai

Mahauika - Fire - Ahi

Tawirimatea - Air - Hau

Papatūānuku - Earth - Whenua

Through the gift of story, and the transformational power of dance

Connecting deeply to nature, by being attuned to your own personal nature 

This is our pathway. 

What to expect?

Creative mess, creative play, dirty hands, and making.

Dance as prayer and ritual

Construction and deconstruction.

A place where movement, dance, creativity and elemental nature help lead us,

A brave space, personal inquiry, sweaty backs, ocean swims, laughter, dancing wildly,

Drinking in the stillness, meditation, phat bass, some creative explorations

All infused by my indigenous heart, a reset, acknowledgment,

Space to exist.
