New Zealand School of Dance, 11 Hutchison Road, Newtown, Wellington



The New Zealand School of Dance (NZSD) is one of the Southern Hemisphere's leading dance training institutions. The School has an international reputation and is known for producing versatile and employable dancers.

The full-time programme prepares dancers for careers in dance performance. Students major in either classical ballet or contemporary dance, but maintain a strong base in both disciplines.

The NZSD has an outstanding faculty of teaching staff. Guest tutors and specialists in anatomy, dance history, nutrition, yoga and performance psychology round out the holistic training. The School’s impressive purpose built facilities house five dance studios, a 160-seat theatre, library, Pilates/Gyrotonic® and physiotherapy areas, and a cafe. Students have access to a state-of-the-art gym with personal trainer and hostel accommodation. Secondment opportunities are available through the NZSD’s excellent relationships with leading dance companies.

Most graduates enter careers in dance performance, around 75% receiving contracts with dance companies. Recent graduates are dancing with West Australian Ballet, Black Grace, Sydney Dance Company, The Royal New Zealand Ballet, Singapore Dance Theatre, Footnote Dance, Australian Dance Theatre, Chunky Move and the New Zealand Dance Company.
