Every year the New Zealand School of Dance presents a series of informal studio performances. These are a great opportunity for you to experience up close and personal works in progress by the School's classical and contemporary dance students. The second informal showing for 2005 will feature bold new work from recent graduate Travis Khan (now performing in the Australian production of The Lion King), a special solo performance by contemporary dance graduate Ross McCormack (awarded Best Male Dancer at the 2004 Helpmann Awards), along with excerpts from the traditional classical ballets.
