Ballet in a Box events

Ever wondered what a day in the life of a dancer of the Royal New Zealand Ballet is like? These free events are your chance to find out!

Students in selected regional centres are invited to get up close to the RNZB. The dancers will demonstrate the basics of ballet and perform short works, costumes and all. This interactive experience concludes with a Q&A session – always popular!

These performances, tailor-made for students from years 1 to 13, are 60 minutes long performances and free of charge.

Due to the popularity of these events, seats are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Book early to avoid disappointment!
