COVID-19 UPDATE 1 March. With the exception of those scheduled in the Auckland region, workshops in schools can still go ahead at the discretion of individual schools. Our Dance Educators will take additional measures to ensure the safety of the students that they work with.

Chloe was amazing – she was inspirational. Her workshops were well paced and dynamic. 

Example of themes for a workshop:

  • introductory session “What is Ballet?”
  • exploration of the choreography from the current production
  • dance workshop based on our NCEA resources
  • dance workshop focused on a specific topic linked to your student’s classroom activities

Although preference is given to areas where the RNZB is performing, our dance educators can deliver workshops in all parts of the country – contact us to discuss possible availability.

Workshops can range from an intensive hour to an extended involvement lasting several months.

All our schools workshops support the aims and objectives of the New Zealand Arts Curriculum and are suitable for primary through to NCEA-level students, whether or not they have dance experience.
