Alex participates in a Manu Toa Haka group. The tradition originated in New Zealand from Maori dances and a war dance in particular. Older schoolage boys have adapted this mode of energy release and bonding to help their brothers meet their goals in life. For instance, to make good grades, and stop slacking off. Performing traditional dance and embracing their cultural identity has indeed helped give each of the young men in the group renewed focus and drive in their individual lives.

Alex interviews Bolivian dancers, both male and female, to share with us Bolivian tradition of dance and music, and how the fantastically colourful costumes represent this. We're shown a traditional Bolivian folk instrument that really helps keep the rhythm and pace of these festive, carnival dances. To watch beautiful young Brazilian women who speak with an Aussie accent, is to witness a faraway family culture being embraced and maintained. Good on us, with all the colour and passion we get to
