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.

Masters of dance

NZSD GradSeason

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.

The Ryman Healthcare Season of Romeo and Juliet

Artistic Director and choreographer Francesco Ventriglia creates a new version of the world’s greatest love story, especially for the Royal New Zealand Ballet. Experience this beautiful and romantic tale in Wellington at the St James Theatre from 16-20 August 2017.

50th Anniversary Graduation Season - School of Dance

Celebrating 50 years of achievement, the national dance school presents a season of visionary choreography at the St James Theatre on 24-25 Nov 2017. Saluting the many teachers, choreographers and dancers who have left their mark upon the School, and dance in New Zealand, performances will feature students of the School alongside dancers from the Royal New Zealand Ballet.
