Children Twist & Turn Out A Story in New Dance Workshop

Children Twist & Turn Out A Story in A Series Of New Dance Workshops With Java Dance

Java Dance comes to Capital E in a new series of dance workshops for children aged 3-5 years. Every Tuesday at 10am - 10.30am from 5 May – 30 June, children will twist and turn out a tale in Dance A Story.

From giraffes who can’t dance, to rhinos that rock & roll and lions who tango, tiny dancers will explore a magical world of movement. Favourite characters will spring to life as we jump, spin and tip-toe to each story. Stories will include Giraffes Can’t Dance, Mister Whistler, Duck’s Stuck and The Animal Undie Ball.

Java Dance was founded in 2003 by artistic director Sacha Copland with graduates of the New Zealand School of Dance. Java is a New Zealand based professional dance company that consistently creates and presents original works of its own immersive brand of dance theatre.  Now in its 12th year of operation, Java has performed to over 80,000 people around NZ, Australia and Edinburgh. Java’s work includes festival shows, schools tours & site-specific events with programmes crafted for adults, teenagers & kids.

Events Coordinator of Capital E Karen Carey says, “We enjoyed Java Dance performing and interacting with children in the recent Capital E National Arts Festival in their two shows, Dirt & Other Delicious Ingredients and Streets. We’re thrilled to welcome them back to Capital E Central to inspire children in telling stories through physical movement and dance.”

Dance A Story runs every Tuesday from 5 May – 30 June at 10am at Capital E Central, 4 Queens Wharf. Workshops are $5 per session and can be booked at E Central or by phone on 04 913 3740.

Gordon Campbell: On How National’s ”New” Welfare Plan Resurrects A Past Failure

Sam Uffindell’s defenders keep reminding us that he was only 16 at the time of the King’s College incident, and haven’t we all done things in our teens that, as adults, we look back on with shame and embarrassment? True. Let's be honest. Haven’t we all at one time or another, joined a gang and beaten a smaller, younger kid black and blue with wooden clubs? In that respect, Uffindell’s defenders on the streets of Tauranga risk sounding a bit like the psychiatrist Kargol played by Graham Chapman on Monty Python. Some of the media commentary has also noted how the Uffindell saga has taken the shine off National’s good poll results and distracted us all from the unveiling of an important welfare policy at the recent National Patty conference. OK… So let's put the spotlight back on that welfare policy...
