High Tea With A Dancing Legend - Darcey Bussell

High Tea With A Dancing Legend - Darcey Bussell

In preparation for its 50th anniversary in 2017 the New Zealand School of Dance (NZSD) is holding a high tea with international dance luminary Darcey Bussell on 2 April in Wellington. Darcey Bussell is visiting New Zealand exclusively for the event, which will mark the beginning of the exciting lead-up to NZSD’s anticipated celebrations.

Darcey was born in London, where she danced as Principal with The Royal Ballet - at the time the youngest ballerina to be given this honour. She has danced with many leading companies including the New York City Ballet, the Kirov Ballet and The Australian Ballet. Darcey was awarded a CBE in 2006, received an honorary doctorate from Oxford University in 2009 and is Vice-President of the Royal Academy of Dance. Darcey is currently a judge on the UK's Strictly Come Dancing.

Heralded by The Telegraph (UK) as "the first British dancer since Margot Fonteyn to become a household name", Darcey Bussell is one of the greatest English ballerinas of all time.

This exclusive fundraiser for the School's 50th Anniversary includes delicious food, auction, dance performance by NZSD students, live music and a tutu display. In addition to the High Tea there are a limited number of seats available to watch Darcey coach selected NZSD students earlier in the day.
