Calum Gray joined the RNZB as an apprentice in 2019, performing in ballets including Black Swan, White Swan, Artifact II, Serenade and Hansel & Gretel. He was promoted to Artist at the beginning of 2020 and has performed several solo roles including Penny Saunders’ Berceuse (Tutus on Tour) and the Master of Ceremonies and the Wolf in The Sleeping Beauty. Calum took up dancing as a hobby at the age of eight. As a teenager, he recognised his desire to dance professionally after being inspired by seeing a performance of Romeo and Juliet by Northern Ballet. Calum’s family emigrated to New Zealand from North Wales when he was just 14. He began full time dance training at 16 and subsequently entered the New Zealand School of Dance, from which he graduated in 2018.

Calum’s talents were highlighted in the School’s 2018 graduation performance, dancing Christopher Wheeldon’s acclaimed pas de deux, After the Rain.
