Wairoa Xmas Festival 2017
Lead and choreographed by Royden Winitana
Crew members mixed in will local and visiting children & rangatahi learn the choregraphy to 2 dances along the Wairoa walkway. The rest of the community were able to watch on and watch the routine unfold as the dancers were put through their places.
Art & Crafts
Using natural (driftwood, shells, feather) and simple storeboughts knickknacks (paint, glitter, ribbon) our tamariki were able to make various Xmas themed decorations as well as use the tools to create their own magic.

The children then had a turn creating 2 graffiti art pieces and try out some of the skills to create a finish product.
Xmas Float Parade
Suicide Squad vs. Ninja Turtles
Self created by the YROA YNOT crew the float trailed the parade giving out lollies.
At the end the crew invited the kids to jump on and have some photos on the float and feel like part of the day.
