Are you looking for a fun and energetic way to facilitate the bringing together of your team? Haka workshops offer creative team events that are informative, fun and energetic and help to bring team members out of their shells and get them work together as one unit. 

The Haka is the Māori’s traditional war dance. Originally performed by warriors before battle in order to intimidate their opponents, it is also used in Māori culture to welcome distinguished guests and to acknowledge important achievements or special occasions. Not exclusive to men, there are several different types of Haka with some performed predominantly by women. 

Following a spine-tingling performance from a group of respected professionals, you and your team will be split into groups and have a chance to learn all the moves that are found in a traditional Haka: facial contortions and grimaces, feet stomping and slapping the hands against the body and of course chanting and your best war cry! 

After each group has had a session with the experts and feel they are ready to take on their opponents, they’ll perform their Haka and see who isn’t left quaking in their boots. 

Led by an experienced Haka performer who is descended from the New Zealand tribe Ngati Toa Rangatira, the tribe who has ownership of the famous Haka ‘Ka Mate’ a ceremonial Haka performed by the All Blacks, this Haka workshop is truly authentic. This particular Haka is performed by both sexes and is used as a way to achieve cohesiveness (kotahitanga) within tribes to attain focus and unity for a common purpose - the perfect ethos for your team building event.

Highly energetic, the Haka is a great way for participants to blow off steam, try something new with their colleagues and join together to create a cohesive dance performance. Key messages can be incorporated within the workshops to ensure they are in keeping with your brand values. 

'Ko to tatou whakaaro kotahi, to tatou mea nui'

'It is our oneness of thought that is our greatest gift'

Top Tip:

Haka performance can also be booked on its own for events.
