New Zealand School of Dance Celebrates 55 years of World Class Training.

The New Zealand School of Dance (NZSD) has played a significant role in shaping this country’s dance culture for more than half a century and its 55th Anniversary Performance Season programmes proudly reflect its achievements.

The season is an opportunity to witness the high calibre of students and the results of working with inspirational world-class tutors. Audiences at Te Whaea: National Dance and Drama Centre will be treated to a comprehensive mix of contemporary dance and classical ballet featuring outstanding choreography from NZSD alumni and teachers. Performances will alternate throughout the season.

The five works in the ballet programme are all choreographed by NZSD Distinguished Graduate and highly sought-after dance maker, Loughlan Prior (Choreographer-in-Residence to the Royal New Zealand Ballet).

The contemporary dance programme showcases five innovative works, choreographed by Distinguished Graduates Craig Bary and Sarah Foster-Sproull, as well as NZSD graduates and tutors Holly Newsome and Tyler Carney.
