MTI-IHI are a whānau of dancers who base themselves right here in Okaihau. Ngāreta is a Year 10 Student at Okaihau College and she is a key member of MTI (Movement to Inspire). She teaches hip hop classes to a number of Okaihau College and Okaihau Primary School students. Her brother Heremia is also an ex-student of Okaihau College. MTI love the Māori culture and love Hip Hop dance. They want the opportunity to get back into The Stage – Haka Fusion, to redeem themselves and show their unique stories in a creative, innovative and ‘stylie’ way. With your help and support, they can do this!
They are now full-on preparing their new set and are focused to ‘KAPOW’ the judges and ‘WOW’ the audience. They will be ready to take on the big guns, having experienced both the ups and downs that have prepared them well.
