Tukotahi Dances at Hip Hop World Championships

Tukotahi Mareikura Edmonds 13 Wha was described by Identity Dance Company as being ‘a pivotal member’ of the Dance team representing New Zealand at the World Hip Hop Championships, held in Phoenix. Arizona recently.

This was an amazing experience for Tukotahi, an opportunity to compete against dancers from 50 countries. While not making the finals this time, Tukotahi had a fantastic time, he particularly enjoyed catching up with friends from the USA team whom he had met at other competitions. He was really pleased with his teams performances and believes that they all did their very best on the day. It was an honour to just be selected to compete.

While he is passionate about dance, Tukotahi doesn’t wish to pursue it as a career, rather he has his sights set on getting an apprenticeship. With the tenacity and commitment required to dance at this level Tukotahi has every chance of realising his goals.
