Hello!
I am working on a choreography project, and I need to find a name for the group of nine dancers who will perform it. It’s contemporary dance.
I’m looking for a word related maybe to movement, to dreams, to the mind, to stories, to nature… It could be anything, I’m just giving you some ideas. I’d prefer it to be in a language that is not English, I’m curious to see what you can think about.

Just to start you off how about Kori. It is the New Zealand Maori word for movement.

@lechuza, Movimento (Portuguese)

or… Jeugo or… Tiempo
(Spanish) variants from the word Movement.

Thank you guys! I like your ideas, I will definitely consider them.

@stryder, do you know other words in Maori? Like dance, life, spirit, road, bird, wind…?

Keep them coming, HEthens…

@lechuza, I’m not an expert on Maori but here are a few more words for you which I think could work as the name of a dance act:

ora = life
harakoa = happy
aroha = love
manu = bird
piki = climb
