Ballet In A Box | Years 1-13
Dance | Years 1-13
Join us again for Ballet in a Box at the Vodafone Events Centre. Ballet in a Box gives a glimpse into a day in the life of a Royal New Zealand Ballet dancer.
This year’s programme includes The Ugly Duckling – a playful performance which re-tells Hans Christian Andersen’s timeless fairytale, with a distinctly New Zealand twist. It’s a heart-warming, coming of age story that focuses on the challenges of growing up, fitting in and finding your flock.
For the very first time there will be a show in te reo Māori and one with New Zealand sign language. There will also be one relaxed performance, catering for neurodiverse audiences of all ages.
This interactive experience comes complete with a steps demonstration and a short performance, costumes and all. It concludes with a Q&A with the dancers.
