Adapted Dance Workshops

The Royal New Zealand Ballet is dedicated to improving the well-being of individuals through the benefits of dance. Our focus is on the health benefits which can be enjoyed from participating in dance – benefits should be available to all sectors of the community.

Adapted Dance is a recreational dance practice adjusted for people with special needs. Dance movement is based on the abilities and strengths of each participant, developing mobility and body awareness. It’s a friendly and tolerant space where anyone can experience the joy of dancing!
