Description of this Book

In March 1967 the New Zealand School of Dance brought together the first class of ten students, as the National School of Ballet, and it has gone from strength to strength ever since. To celebrate its fiftieth anniversary, Turid Revfeim, a graduate, former Ballet Mistress with the Royal New Zealand Ballet and now tutor at the School, tells the fascinating story - from the School's earliest days in a single studio to its triumphant rebirth in permanent, purpose-built premises at Te Whaea, the National Dance and Drama Centre; and from its beginnings teaching classical ballet through the addition of an innovative contemporary dance programme. NEW ZEALAND SCHOOL OF DANCE 50 YEARS 1967-2017 honours the renowned staff the School has attracted, as well as its students, who have made significant contributions to the dance scene both nationally and internationally as performers, choreographers and teachers. Beautifully illustrated and culminating with a gallery of photographs by Stephen A'Court, this book will enchant anyone who loves dance and wants to learn more about one of the jewels of New Zealand's dance culture.
