To mark the Company’s 70th year, the Royal New Zealand Ballet has launched an alumni association for former members of the RNZB.  

If you are a former dancer, member of the production team or other staff member, we would love to hear from you and to keep in touch in the future. 

We will be creating an annual newsletter for alumni and will host reunion events in Wellington, Christchurch and Auckland each year from 2023. 

Inaugural events will be around the performances of the Lightscapes 70th anniversary programme on the evenings of 28 July (Wellington), 5 August (Christchurch) and 11 August (Auckland). 

Alumni will be able to purchase substantially discounted tickets and will have the opportunity to catch up and reconnect with former colleagues at pre-performance drinks, and with current company members after the show. On the Saturday morning, alumni will be invited to attend company class. 

Further details and booking information will be sent to alumni in February 2023. 

We ask that alumni sign up personally, and not on behalf of others. If you have a friend or family member who is a former member of the RNZB but is unable to sign up online and/or receive email communication, please email so that we can contact you personally to discuss other ways of connecting.
