This morning at the Allenton School Hall, five people from the Kahurangi Dance Company came in to show us a really good presentation. They sang songs, danced, talked and used titi rakau and poi. Their group has been together for one week two days. In the group there are three boys, two girls and their names are - Lucky, Michelle, Jordan, Aroha and Laona. In one of their waiata/songs, they were throwing Titi Rakau to each other while singing at the same time! I really enjoyed one of the parts when three of them chose one boy each to come up to the front with them and copy some actions. One of the three that were at the front was Mr. Hannagan! He made lots of funny sounds and did the actions almost correct. It was really funny watching it all happen! One of the few parts that I didn't like was all of the noise and yelling. My ears were aching when we came out, but I still really enjoyed it! I think that they are really talented and I really want to see them perform again!!!🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I rate it 4/5 stars. Today this morning at 9:00 we had the group of Kahurangi dancers. My favourite was when MR Hannigan copied the guy in front of him and copied the taiaha noises. I think the is taiaha nearly the best I heard lately because the Ashburton music festival was five stars
We watched today a Maori dance. It was at 9:10-10:15. It was in the Allenton School hall. There were 3 men and 2 ladies.They sang a variety of waiata. In every waiata they did some dancing. Through different parts of the performance they talked about their ancestors .At one part they asked some people what their favourite taonga was. Some people said it was chocolate or gold. A taonga is a treasure and could be your family. I gave it a ****.
On Monday 3rd of August at 9.00am at Allenton school. The kahurangi dance company came and did a concert for the whole school and did some dancing and waiata. When they got into it they asked people to come up and played a little game like Simon says and Mr H, Conner and Brooklyn came up and Mr H was so funny. The songs they preformed were so good. I would give them 4 and a half out of 5. Their names were Michelle, Jane, Jordan, Lucky and Aroha I think. I loved the Kahurangi group because they were so good and I wish they can perform again at Allenton school again.

On Monday 3rd of August, 9:00, all the students of Allenton school were hustled into the hall for a special Maori dance. The Kahurangi dance company had arrived to share their performance with us! The group did waiata, dancing and taught us all about taonga, treasures, ancestors, poi, taiaha, rakau, titi rakau and all about the Maori culture. The company has been together for 32 years but the group that performed to us had only been together since the start of the term! It was amazing how they cooperated so well if they hadn't known each other for long. They were really loud too, and it was a great performance. My two favourite parts was the part where part where people had to try out some moves, and the rakau. The people who tried out moves was Brooklyn, Connor and Mr H. It was funny because one performer made lots of disgusting, horrifying sounds and Mr H seemed to be able to copy them and sound exactly like the performer! It was really funny and everyone cracked up laughing. My other favourite part, the rakau, I liked because it was so clever. Usually we would bang sticks and pass the rakau sticks to each other on the mat when we do rakau. But the performers threw them high up in the air to each other really fast. They also passed them to each other up above them even! My favourite bit was when they threw one and caught one at the same time! It was so cool!
It was a great performance.
I give them a 5/5 for star rating!
Kahurangi dance company
Today in the morning at 9:00 Allenton School were entertained by the amazing Kahurangi Dance group. they performed in the hall and we could hear their feet move as they stepped on the wooden floor .They sang a variety of of songs and their dancing skills were amazing. They told us what toanga meant and I already knew what it meant because my brother's name is Taonga and in our language it means thank you. Anyway the women did the poi; the long poi means the birds flying and the short poi means the heart beat. The men did the ti ti rakau. In conclusion I give them five stars.
Kahurangi Dance Company
On Monday 3rd of August we went to the hall to watch kahurangi dance company. Firstly they greated us,then the sung some waiata and did amazing dancing with pois and ti ti rakou. Then they
This morning the whole of Allenton school met up at the Allenton school hall to watch the kahurangi dance company perform for us.
My favourite performance was when they performed with the titi rakau, it was amazing.
The group had only been together for one week and two days which is pretty amazing since they were amazing!
The girls performed with long and short pois, long meaning birds as if to look pretty, and short meaning heart beat of papatuanuku.
The performers were communicating with the audience for an example bringing people/ volunteers up to the front and teaching them a dance.
I think that the performance was perfect and deserves an easy 4•5/5
Kahurangi Dance Company.
We went to the allenton school hall.At 9.00 to watch the kahurngi dance company and it was super super good. The dance was super amazing with the poi and the red and white stick.After that we saw the very good dances they wanted to have 3mans to come up and the people that went up was mr.H,Brooklyn and Connor . They had to copy Jordan do the cool amazing moves and noises.One of the noises was kiiiiiiiia and when M.H did it and everyone laughed with him . So the kahurangi Dance company was super amazing and cool when they made the noise. It was fun watching them perform the kahurangi dance company.
