Friends of the RNZB

Join the movement and keep the dancers on their toes!

The Friends of the RNZB are passionate about ballet and have supported the RNZB since its inception. Express your love of ballet by taking out an annual membership.

Annual membership of the Adult Friends starts from just $50. This gives you access to discounted tickets and newsletters with in-depth information from behind the scenes at the Ballet and a chance to get involved with other RNZB activities throughout the year. A full list of benefits is listed below.

Young Friends membership is just $30, with a discount for siblings living in the same household. The Young Friends programme is designed specifically for budding young dancers and is run closely in conjunction with RNZB Education. Young Friends of the RNZB also have their own exclusive benefits and discounts. This includes access to education material for performances and invitations to attend open class, taught by an RNZB Ballet Master.
