MYKE
When I dance, it is just the most peaceful place I could be in. I get to be myself. I get to express how I am feeling in the moment. It can feel almost like being nothing, in a positive peaceful way. If I am in a battle though, it’s very competitive dancing, but we leave that feeling on the floor.

If we’re doing battle, it’s like cards, it depends on how the other crew dance. When they show their hand, you have to work out how to beat those cards. It’s a big strategy game.

I really wanted to go to the United States for a competition called Hip Hop international. Me and the boys eventually ended up qualifying two years ago. We came fourth, and it’s one of my proudest moments.

When I think about where I’ve come from and where I’m going to be in maybe 10 years’ time, I want to help out a community in a small town. I’ve been thinking about going back up to Whangarei and building up the dance community there. I don’t know where this journey is going to go, but it has already taken me to some really cool places.

Based on the theme:
Maubonian te teei i nanon te mwenga bon karekean te maiuraoi, te ongotaeka ao te tangira.
In English, this translates as:
“The home is where we nurture our children towards a healthy, responsible, loving and prosperous future.”
