A Day In The Life

WHAT do the dancers of the Royal New Zealand Ballet do to prepare for a new production? How old are the dancers? How many hours do they dance each day?

The Royal New Zealand Ballet's A Day in the Life event is a chance to find out the answers to everything you want to know about what it's like to be a dancer in New Zealand's national ballet company.

A Day in the Life is a free event for the whole family, where you get to take a peek behind-the-scenes of the Royal New Zealand Ballet.

The day offers a chance to not only ask questions but also:

  • Watch dancers taking a class and gain a rare insight into their daily training schedule.


  • Watch the dancers rehearse and perform some of the company's recent repertoire. 


  • Listen to former dancer and current Ballet Mistress, Turid Revfeim, talk about the history of the Royal New Zealand Ballet.


  • Children aged from 5-10 years old can participate in a fun-filled creative dance workshop with a Dance Explorer Educator.
