RNZB secures the exclusive Tyrrell Katz ballet range in time for Christmas

The Royal New Zealand Ballet has added the delightful Tyrrell Katz ballet range to its online merchandise shop.

General Manager Amanda Skoog says she is thrilled to have secured the exclusive license to sell the range in New Zealand.

“James Tyrrell is an extraordinarily cleaver illustrator and his designs will delight young and old,” she says. “We are thrilled they have arrived in time for Christmas. The quirky characters featured in the Tyrrell Katz ballet range are all drawn in correct ballet positions and I’m sure they will be a source of fascination and inspiration for budding Kiwi dancers.”
