Creative Dance Workshops

Covid update 13 September. At Level 2 our dance educators are again able to travel  around the country delivering workshops.  Like you, we are keenly aware of the need for caution about having visitors to your school and we have a series of measures in place to protect your students and our dance educators. See the Covid checklist here.

Please note: If you had a booking which was postponed because of the lockdown, our dance educators will be in touch to discuss new dates.

The dance educator was engaging and enthusiastic and the children enjoyed her company. Children were well managed and she kept things moving at a great pace.

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.
