Dance in Wellington

As home to the Royal New Zealand Ballet, Wellington hosts a range of dynamic and delightful dance performances throughout the year. We've handpicked some of our favourites from the capital's dance calendar.

St Petersburg Ballet Theatre: Swan Lake

819163 379231 14

The critically acclaimed St Petersburg Ballet Theatre will perform the much-loved ballet Swan Lake (5-7 Jan 2017). First performed in St Petersburg in 1895, the immortal and enchanting Swan Lake, with its unrivalled “white acts”, its spectacular and dramatic ballroom scene, sublime music and deeply moving story, is the ballet that towers above all others.

Masters of dance

Two major dance institutions call the capital home. Royal New Zealand Ballet, our dynamic national ballet company known for mixing classical repertoire with a progressive attitude that is distinctively Kiwi; and the New Zealand School of Dance, internationally recognised as one of the Southern Hemisphere's leading tertiary dance institutions.
