Tertiary Performing Arts School Re-Branding

Tertiary Performing Arts School is Re-Branding as New Zealand Performing Arts for Overseas Students



After 20 years of running tertiary courses in dance and performing arts, East Auckland Performing Arts is striking out on a new pathway, under a new name at a new location in Botany: re-branding as New Zealand Performing Arts to provide clarity for overseas students.

“We have started to attract a number of students from overseas as well as from all over New Zealand” says Director Elizabeth Harvey who has been running the school since 2008. “Previously is was mostly attended by students from the Auckland region” she says “but our reputation based on the success of our graduates has grown considerably and students now come from all over”. The 2014 intake includes students from Japan, China and the Philippines as well as students from all around New Zealand.

The school which recently moved to a Botany location is justifiably proud of it recent graduates who are performing in many different parts of the world. Last year a former student Aurelian Child de Brocas won a gold medal at the prestigious International Genee Ballet Competition and is now training in Portugal and another 2013 graduate Lillie Scott Smith (pictured above) is currently performing at a resort in the Dominican Republic. Quinn Tattersfield who also graduated in 2013 and is pictured above has been given the opportunity to continue his training at the New Zealand School of Dance this year.

The school which is an NZQA Registered Private Training Establishment will also be shortly adopting the new National Performing Arts Qualifications currently being finessed by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority, which Ms Harvey believes will prove much more attractive to their overseas students.
