Elaine's dance class
Elaine runs a dance school in Hataitai, I had the chance to photograph the kids in action on Monday, and wow what fun! I remember being dragged kicking and screaming to ballet as a wee one, and spending the whole time worrying about my toes that wouldn't point.
Elaine's classes are different, it is obvious from watching that all the kids were having a whale of a time, and learning to love dancing as well as move their bodies. The 'classes' section on the website says it best:
"Classes are interactive and encourage children to play and put forward their ideas. We celebrate each individual’s natural way of moving and offer ideas and encouragement to help them find their own rhythm and movement style "
