The Royal New Zealand Ballet is a national treasure, which all New Zealanders can be proud.
The Royal New Zealand Ballet is a national treasure, which all New Zealanders can be proud. The company, which employs 32 dancers from New Zealand and throughout the world, has an extensive dance education department that offers a number of programmes to suit schools.
These include creative dance, choreographic and performance workshops and matinee performances for school groups. Each workshop/performance package supports the aims and objectives of the New Zealand arts curriculum and is tailored to suit the current season performances the ballet is presenting.
The company welcomes small groups of students to view a class or rehearsal, visit the wardrobe and meet the dancers through their community programmes (bookings are essential). The RNZB has a number of performances suitable for school students every season; check the website for more details.
