Prince Harry Performs Traditional Haka War Dance In New Zealand

Prince Harry reportedly learned the moves for a traditional Maori haka war dance in just 20 minutes.

The Internet is going crazy over Prince Harry's dance moves after he performed a traditional Kiwi haka war dance in New Zealand.

The royal was filmed busting some serious moves with troops at Linton Military Camp, the largest army base in New Zealand.

What’s even more fascinating is the fact that Prince Harry learned the fairly difficult dance routine in just 20 minutes, according to the New Zealand Herald.

"Given the time restraints in trying to teach him, I know it was a bit difficult trying to learn the actions and the words, so I think he did really well," said Warrant Officer Class 2 Brett Pene, who served as Harry's instructor. "He got a bit frustrated here and there but that happens when you've only got 20 minutes to learn."

Haka is a form of tribute to the different indigenous tribes of New Zealand.

While Kiwi rugby players mostly use haka to intimidate their opponents, it’s also performed on other occasions, such as parties and even funerals.
