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.

Intermediate: Intermediate Foundation, Grades 7 – 8, intermediate level or equivalent
Advanced: Advanced Foundation, Advanced 1 & 2, or Solo Seal level
