Encouraging the Younger Generations

Whakarewarewa, Rotorua. May 2009. Ajr
How cool is this! At the kapa haka performance at Whakarewarewa in Rotorua today, all the little girls joined, flapping their pois about and swaying to the music. No one minded. No one sent them away.Everyone just carried on as normal. And normal it is, for these little ones grow up in a performing environment. They learn the song and dance routines young and they carry on to perform as teenagers and adults, taking over when their parents 'retire' from the stage. There's a lovely sense of continuity about it that I found quite inspiring.
