Applications Open Friday

Applications for Winter School 2015 go live on our website on tomorrow at 1pm.

Winter School, running 6 - 10 July, is a fantastic opportunity for young dance students to learn from the faculty of the New Zealand School of Dance alongside some of the best local and international teachers.

We wanted to give you a heads up because spaces are limited and they fill up fast. The course description is already online for you to plan what level you will be and decide whether you'll buy tickets to our film fundraiser.

OFFICIAL SCHOOL of the Royal New Zealand Ballet

The New Zealand School of Dance has been formally recognised as the 'Official School of the Royal New Zealand Ballet’. We are delighted with this confirmation of the close ties between the company and NZSD since the School was founded in 1967.
When the announcement was made, NZSD director Garry Trinder said "the aspiration both organisations share is to present young New Zealanders with a legitimate career path through entry to the School and into the Company. Our primary wish is to see more New Zealanders remain in the country and play pivotal roles shaping our national dance culture." Read more

In New Zealand and New York

Yayoi Matches, from Auckland, is in her third year at the NZSD. She has been given two opportunities to represent the School in ballet competitions this year.

Yayoi will compete in the Alana Haines Australasian Awards at Easter. She has also been accepted for the Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP) in April. At the YAGP finals in New York Yayoi will be dancing Gamzatti's solo from 'La Bayadère' and a specially created contemporary solo choreographed by NZSD tutor Victoria Colombus.


We have a new prospectus, which gives a really good summary of the School, our courses and what it's like to study here.

This is essential reading for anyone thinking about auditioning for the NZSD.
