Tamaki Int. - Indian Girls Group Dance

As part of our Tamaki Intermediate Haka Waiata Festival 2008 our students had to perform five acts in total that represented some of the different cultures at Tamaki Intermediate School. This act is the Girls Indian Group from Calliope House (Red - hence the uniforms). The students were taught this traditional Indian Dance by one of the Calliope House Teachers who was Mrs Sigamoney. They practised themsevles leading up to the competition. Regular followers of this site may recognise some of the students in this act! Filmed during the festival by Victor on Friday 5th December 2008 at Tamaki Intermediate School Hall.

Students in New Zealand have another two weeks of holidays before the end of our summer holidays with students back in early February in most places. A reminder that this site is being maintained as a static site - new posts (2009) relating to the work of the teacher will be posted on our new site opening in a couple of weeks. Thanks for your visit.

I understand your starting a new blog, but it is a shame since this blog has generated so much interest and so many contacts. Make sure to leave a link on this blog so that I can find your new site and follow it.

I absolutely will this blog has meant the world to me and the students that created it, and I feel that we accomplished a fair amount in a short space of time, but its also time for me to move on to a new location and blog.

Hey, I really like this blog! It's interesting to see the different types of dances the students do within one school. American dancing is so different from this Indian dance. Those girls must have put a lot of work and time into that and they did great! Comment back on my blog.
