This term we were learning about how the arts connect to the community. We made some plays and we performed them in town yesterday. I was nervous but I was proud that I did it. I liked the part when Mrs Bentall sang.
I was looking at the audience the whole time and facing them too. At the end I went to go and get my mum but she didn't want to come and dance. I saw other people's parents hugging their children - this is showing whanaungatanga.
The audience clapped at the end of each play because they enjoyed it like me. At home my mum said that it was very good, I was happy.
I'm going to continue to use the arts by making my neighbors happy. I think that my ideas about the arts connecting to the community has many ideas because they all have a reason.
This is the link of my dance:
