School Of Dance Students To Spread Their Wings

New Zealand School Of Dance Students To Spread Their Wings

Six final year students from the New Zealand School of Dance have recently secured professional contracts with illustrious dance companies Black Grace and Australian Dance Theatre.

Black Grace Dance Company, founded and directed by one of New Zealand’s most accomplished choreographers Neil Ieremia, is a company which continues to garner international praise. The five students securing contracts with Black Grace are particularly excited to be commencing their professional careers here in New Zealand.

Australian-born Troy Honeysett will join Australian Dance Theatre in a weeks time for the Japanese and European tour of Artistic Director Garry Stewart's work, HELD. Stewart was awarded Best Choreographer for HELD at the annual Helpmann Awards in 2004.

New Zealand School of Dance director, Garry Trinder said: “This is a wonderful achievement for both the students and the School. Each of the students has something unique to offer and for them to have been snapped up by such prestigious companies is acknowledgment of both the dancer’s talent and the training we have provided them. Their careers will be followed with much anticipation.”
