To complement your attendance of our productions, we invite
schools from all over New Zealand to take part in creative dance
workshops. These workshops are conducted at your school and aim to
further increase students' awareness of Royal New Zealand Ballet
and our productions.
These workshops, usually facilitated during the week of the
production, will give students a greater understanding of the work
presented, introduce them to choreographic techniques and help hone
their performance skills. Each workshop is also tailored to give
insight into the choreographer's intentions, the musical influences
and the designer's vision.
With a maximum of 30 students per class, one of our
Educators will visit your school for one class or a series of
lessons throughout the day. Book early to avoid disappointment.
All of the schools workshops support the aims and
objectives of the New Zealand Arts Curriculum and are suitable for
primary through to NCEA level students.
Enhance your Students' Experience
We offer special ticket prices for workshop participants
to attend our live ballet performances.
Dance develops valuable life skills:
- Inspires creativity and personal expression
- Develops personal and social skills
- Promotes a positive awareness of health and fitness
- Develops critical appreciation
- Enhances language, numeracy and problem solving skills.
Creative Dance Workshops are conducted in conjunction with
each of our seasons. Where possible workshops are booked at a time
that suits your schools timetable. Workshops can be as short as one
hour or up to a day, the choice is yours. Please note that our
educator will require a large, open space with a wooden floor and a
stereo that supports MP3 connection and CDs. Students must
change into appropriate clothing before their workshop.
