Kia ora and Talofa,
We are Ura Tabu Pacific Dance and our goal is to put ourselves
forward as the leading female Pacific dance company actively
perpetuating a 'tapu' and empowering approach to Pacific dance that
nourishes our communities.
Our mission derives from a collective female response to reignite
the sacredness of our dances from the Pacific as a way of
re-establishing interconnectedness, collective wellbeing and unity
that ultimately cultivates female empowerment, bold creativity and
fine Pacific performance art.
We offer mindful dance fitness classes, mindful children's
classes, innovative indigenous lead collaborations and cultural
mentoring programs through Pacific movement and embodied
As part of upholding our mission, we are investing in 'Cultural
Immersions' that will ensure our skills and knowledge of Pacific
culture is developed, deepened and reintegrated into the
multi-faceted roles and pathways Ura Tabu has set up for our people
in Tāmaki Makaurau over the years.
Our 'Samoa Cultural Immersion' will take place September 1st -
10th 2019 to coincide with the Teuila Cultural Festivities. During
this time, we will:
1) Facilitate workshops with S.P.A.C.E (Samoa Performing Arts
& Creative Excellence)
2) Teuila Festival Performances
3) Pasifika Mind & Body public event
4) Visit cultural and natural landmarks promoting Samoa, optimal
health and wellbeing through the forms of Siva.
To ensure all our practitioners gain this crucial learning
experience, we are looking to raise $4,000 dollars to help cover
traveling costs while in Samoa.
We are hoping that you could help us reach that goal.
We believe that our values and services are in line with what our
local communities need.
By supporting this campaign, you will be helping us to:
- Continue to lead and grow healthy Pacific Performing art
communities in Aotearoa
- Nurture and create meaningful connections across Te Moana nui a
kiwa with family origins, ancestral and spiritual homes that
further enrich our Kaupapa Pasifika
- Uplift Pacific dance to a sustainable, professional and boldly
Ura Tabu Pacific dance thanks you in advance for your time,
consideration and koha.
