NZ School Of Dance Graduation Season 2006

NZ School Of Dance Graduation Season 2006

15 – 25 November, Te Whaea Theatre, Wellington

Graduation Season 2006 offers a sweeping view of the New Zealand School of Dance’s past and present with a mesmerizing glance into the future.

We celebrate the 250th anniversary of Mozart’s birth with George Balanchine’s intoxicating Divertimento No. 15 and continue the exhilaration of Balanchine's work with his stunning pas de deux, Tarantella.

The programme also includes Michael Parmenter’s visually stimulating The Bach, Val Caniparoli’s emotionally charged Aria and Robert North’s Troy Game, pulsating with wit and masculine energy. Additionally there will be two searing new works from New Zealand choreographers Shona McCullagh and Malia Johnston whose contemporary sensibilities are certain to excite you.

Hailed by The NZ Listener as a ‘dance highlight of the year’, this is an event not to be missed!
