Kia ora! What is Hī Hā?
Hī Hā is a revolutionary, all-Kiwi programme designed for Kiwi kids. Our motivation - to get tamariki moving through story and dance.
A subscription to our online programme gives schools access to Hī Hā Dance, Hī Hā Story and much more.
Hī Hā Dance videos are led by dance instructor Lleuarne Panoho who has been dancing with tamariki in schools since 2015. Our dances are choreographed to 100% Kiwi music with subtle Māori movements. We also have mindful stretch videos for those quieter classroom times.
Hī Hā Story gives your school access to stories and short plays written by award-winning children's author Sally Sutton, and collaborated audio stories/myths read by Kiwi actors, all designed to get tamariki on their feet and moving.
Our programme has themes kids will love (e.g. Manu (NZ Birds), Taniwha, Taniwha!) and is an easy way to integrate literacy, music, dance and Māori language, history and culture into your everyday learning.
In addition to Hī Hā Dance and Hī Hā Story, a subscription gives you access to free resources to be used in the classroom, all aligned with the school curriculum.
Wait, what! There's more?! We also offer school productions! Take the pain out of School Production time and purchase one of our theme-based productions written especially for Kiwi kids! Using our Hī Hā dances and simple costumes and props, they make your school production time a breeze.
What makes Hī Hā different? 100% of our all-Kiwi stories, dances and school productions are designed to get tamariki up and moving. Hī Hā is learning and exercise in disguise!
