Week 2: Dance

We have been learning about a range of cultures and how they differ from each other.  This afternoon we learned about four types of national dance.  Greece - Zorba, New Zealand - Haka, Scotland - Highland fling and Samoa - Sasa.  Each dance had a different beat, different tone and used different parts of your body.  


Watch us practice in the video below

    1. Namaste Aimee. Thank you for commenting on our class blog. That is a really great idea about choosing a different song. We are learning the Zorba at the moment which is a traditional dance from Greece. We will post about this week. From Setoga class.
