Roles & Application

Kaiãwhina roles and functions

The number of Kaiãwhina positions on offer depends on how many people are registered to come to the Dance Camp.  We usually offer about 12 positions and are supported by Tauhara resident Wwoofers. All positions are half working (3 -4 hours per day) and allow you to enjoy the Dance Camp Programme with 50% discount on your ticket.

Once in a role, you continue with that role throughout camp, unless something unforeseen happens – then you may be asked to help in another area.
