We Are
Arms Wide Open

We are on a mission to commission, create and present compelling, relevant work with strong production values that move and inspires our dedicated and growing audience – creating a community that strengthens dance in this country.

We are a high calibre community of artists and supporters dedicated to producing and presenting inspiring new dance for New Zealand and the world.

And we want you to join us.

Your support as an individual or organisation is vital to the sustainability of the Company and our ability to produce beautifully realised work to the high standard of collaborative excellence to which we aspire to present to Auckland, New Zealand and the world.

Funds received will enable us to:

  • Commission new work and collaborate with composers, musicians and designers, and widely with various other art forms;
  • Extend the Youth Engagement Programme (YEP!) and mentor young dancers and choreographers;
  • Provide ‘access’ tickets to encourage the widest audience participation;
  • Tour the company nationally and internationally

*Perfect Partners – a programme that directly impacts some of New Zealand's top artistic talents. Without support, our dancers cannot achieve the security they need to have full-time, sustainable careers.

Corporate support of The New Zealand Dance Company is an investment in our youth and in the arts landscape in New Zealand. We have the desire to shift the story of contemporary dance in a way that speaks to a wide, international audience and the vision to create a sustainable, permanent, high calibre dance company with an Auckland home.

We welcome your call to discuss sponsorship and partnership opportunities. Please contact us via [email protected] or 09 378 7361.
