Calum Gray joins the RNZB this year as an apprentice. 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 immigrated 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.
