As a dance researcher and performance artist, Johanna Claus’ interests lie in accessing the self-regulating processes within the body and exploring the poetics of dance in different contexts and settings. Her work currently entails publishing her PhD at the University of Waikato.


Johanna is a music educator with a master's in Music Pedagogy, incorporating Dalcroze Eurhythmics and Orff Schulwerk.

She is passionate about establishing inclusive and holistic learning environments where students learn a wide range of skills and abilities.


These encompass musicality, rhythm, movement, music theory, physical and mental well-being, imagination, creativity, social skills, mental balance, relaxation, intellectual and physical agility, and concentration.

Johanna will be taking all classes on offer at Raglan, where she resides.

Grounded in the methods of Dalcroze Eurhythmics and Orff Schulwerk, this class nurtures a love for music and dance from a young age.  

This holistic approach nurtures all the fundamental aspects needed to grow them into choosing an instrument to pursue further when they are ready. It also promotes physical and emotional well-being by providing a means for creative expression through music and dance.


Bringing attention to the world of sound, rhythm, movement, singing, actions, and play, in these sessions, students will develop in-tune singing using hand signs, play a range of percussion and melodic instruments and learn to express their creativity through dance. 

They also begin conventional music literacy starting with pictorial notation and leading towards conventional notation.

Our older students will also get tasters of instruments such as xylophones, ukulele, recorder and hand drums.

No practice is required during the week.

A free trial is available if it's your first time.

Discover the transformative power of ensemble singing - a celebration of joyful togetherness that resonates through body and heart.


In these sessions, tailored to different ages and levels, students learn techniques to unleash the full potential of their voice. From a repertoire of diverse songs to captivating choreographies, students get prepared to perform and share their passion with a wider audience.


The technical part of the program is based on developing awareness of the voice and how it functions as an instrument. Students will learn how to warm up their voices in preparation for singing and be provided with a range of scales and vocal workouts to develop vocal range and technique. Technical training will include, posture, breath control, onset of tone, consistency of tone, increase of vocal range, and support.



The performance part of the program is focused on developing on-stage performance skills. Students will have the opportunity to develop confidence by performing in front of an audience. Performance training will include stage movement and use of the stage, mic technique, expression, consistent energy and storytelling, and advice on appropriate costumes.


A fun, engaging adult vocal ensemble
Being part of a choir is a great opportunity to develop your vocal technique and musical knowledge.  Joining a group demands responsibility, commitment, practice and, of course, a couple of times will happen that your friends/family have a dinner or a night out and you can’t make it because you have a practice, rehearsal or a performance coming up.  It’s all part of the fun in being in this group.

All members coming together as a whole to sing in harmony through listening to others is the main goal.  You will develop confidence in yourself, in singing with others and in performing to others.  And most of all, have pure fun singing together.

Suitable for all ages and abilities
No experience required
