New Zealand School of Dance

In its 50th anniversary year, the New Zealand School of Dance returns to Kokomai Creative Festival with a programme of works by some of the most innovative choreographers working in the 20th and 21st centuries. This exuberant and innovative showcase includes choreography by Christina Chan with Aymeric Bichon, Helgi Tomasson and Marius Petipa- from bold contemporary pieces to a romantic reflection of times gone by.

Recently returned from Canada, New Zealand School of Dance performances are a dream for lovers of ballet and contemporary dance. Please note that both our previous School of Dance shows have sold out so you’ll need to be quick to get your tickets. 

Please, no photos to be taken during the show

"Meistens Mozart by Helgi Tomasson, from 1991, to seven songs by Mozart and others, is a charming little opener with the enjoyment of youth and friendship shared. Beguiling."  JENNIFER SHENNAN, MICHELLE POTTER ON DANCING

"Each year the standard of the students graduating from the New Zealand School of Dance just seems to get better. This year the array of talent on stage is stunning."  ANN HUNT, KAPITI INDEPENDENT
