Tamaki Int - Cook Islands Dancing

This video is the first in our series of winners of the 2008 Haka/Waiata Festival. Each of the four houses at Tamaki Intermediate School had to have a 'Mixed' item in the contest that involved up to ten students of Mixed Gender. The winners of this part of the competition were Calliope House (Red) with their Cook Island Dance Group. Many of you saw the rehearsal performance of this earlier in the week, although you can see the students adapted the final version, and the costumes have required a lot of work. A detailed description of this dance is being prepared by the students and will be posted in two days. As with the rest of the highlights from this festival they were filmed by Victor in the Tamaki Intermediate School Hall on Friday 5th December 2008.

Well done to the Calliope House for winning the mixed gender performance. What a great performance! You were very brave on stage and I liked the way you all smiled and looked like you were enjoying yourselves.
Keep up the wonderful work!
