This term we have been learning how the arts connect us to the community. On Thursday 17 September we went to town and performed our amazing acts. I thought we all did fantastic . All the adults were cheering and clapping - it was wonderful.
I thought my group was spectacular, we were great. My highlight was our dance - it was a beauty because we all did the moves right and the bird didn't break. I was most impressed by not me, but Max. He got on the stage and rocked. He didn't know the words but he didn't care.
I was connected with the audience by letting them come up on the stage and dance when I did my solo act. This made me feel great about myself and happy that everyone was dancing and enjoying themselves.
I saw moments of manaakitia: people were clapping and cheering for their friends and family members. This was showing manaakitia because they were caring for each other when they were performing.
I can keep on going with the arts by taking dance and singing lessons or I could get together with a group and do something. I can connect with the community using the arts by becoming a dancer or a singer.
