Meridian CEO Keith Turner said: “I see many benefits for New Zealand as a whole through the Ballet's China tour and I hope New Zealand gets to share in their stories from the tour. As a premiere New Zealand arts organisation, I know the Company will bring great credit to New Zealand. We’re so proud of them and wish them well on their tour.”

The pioneering company is performing a repertoire of outstanding dance, for international audiences, whilst continuing to build a style that is ultimately unique to the Company and New Zealand
