We are a safe
place to be brave

The New Zealand Dance Company is taking a leadership role in creating a viable career path in dance by presenting high calibre dancers, professionally employed and supported in NZ by world-class standards of production, and by offering collaborative educational opportunities and mentoring with our Youth and Community Engagement Programme.

We create creates access to education for people of various ages and abilities to engage in dance. The art form and society are fortified by inspiring the values of courage, enthusiasm, independence and contribution that a passion for dance instils.

Aspiring to pave a sustainable pathway towards becoming future arts practitioners and appreciators, we offer a range of classes and opportunities for dancers to take part at the Company's home-base, Wellesley Studios and arts hubs across New Zealand.

We strongly believe in breaking boundaries and bringing art into communities, regularly deliver engaging workshops and performances to schools and teachers.
