On 6 March 1967, the New Zealand School of Dance (then the National School of Ballet) opened its doors to aspiring young dancers, to provide training for the dance profession.
Celebrating 50 years of achievement, our national dance school presents a season of visionary choreography at the St James Theatre. 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.
This programme of ballet and contemporary dance honours the School’s rich heritage, looking towards a vibrant future.
