Graduates Return to Teach

Two of New Zealand’s finest dancers Ursula Robb and Nadine Tyson are teaching at the New Zealand School of Dance this year.

Ursula Robb spent more than a decade in Europe dancing with Rosas, Ultima Vez and Zoo. In 2011 she worked as rehearsal director with Paris Opera Ballet and danced with the New Zealand Dance Company in their first season.

Auckland dancer Nadine Tyson joined the Royal New Zealand Ballet in 1995. She danced many pivotal roles during nine years with the RNZB and has recently been invited by the company to teach.

Both are graduates of the New Zealand School of Dance and have returned to join the school’s faculty, teaching the current students in 2013.
