For Dance Teachers and Dancers

Open Classes

We help to develop young dancers through a range of exciting classes for students of all levels. These non-syllabus open classes will be led by our artistic staff and RNZB dancers. They offer ballet students a valuable opportunity to enhance their technique while engaging with your national ballet company.

Three tier levels in Auckland, Christchurch, Tauranga and Wellington:
Junior: Grades 3 – 6
Intermediate: Intermediate Foundation, Grades 7 – 8, intermediate level or equivalent
Advanced: Advanced Foundation, Advanced 1 & 2, or Solo Seal level

Senior level classes offered in Napier and Dunedin.
Senior: Intermediate level or above

* Please note the RNZB reserves the right to exclude students on the day who are not at the required standard.
