Access to ballet for every New Zealander
Access to ballet for every New Zealander is a core value for everyone at the RNZB. RNZB Education ensures that access and inclusion stay front and centre through its audio described performances and touch tours, sign language interpreted events, relaxed and sensory-friendly performances, subsidised tickets and transport for schools with financial barriers to participation, and dance workshops in Department of Corrections facilities across the country.
The call to be inclusive is an ongoing challenge to our society, and RNZB Education has risen to the occasion, becoming a leader and innovator in this field. As the recipient of the 2019 Arts Access Creative New Zealand Arts For All Award, RNZB Education is a role model for everyone in the arts sector wishing to develop new audiences by improving their accessibility and engaging with diverse communities.
