Explore the world through dance and music… Magpie Dance invites you to explore the world in just one day!

As you travel across the globe, you’ll visit multiple countries, learn to say and sign ‘hello’ in the native language, discover the names and movements of different dances and the rhythms used to accompany them – then hear it played live by a professional drummer. With costumes to try on, percussion instruments to play, you can immerse yourself to become a global citizen of the dance world.

Bring your friends and family members to share the journey!

Did you know…? Do you know which party dance was originally performed at funerals? Or why Maori warriors paint their faces and dance to their enemies? Or why people in Tibet poke out their tongues to welcome new friends? Come along to find out the answers and more fun facts!
