Pirouettes and Pointed toes! Ballet in a Box…the Royal New Zealand Ballet (RNZB), performed for schools in Auckland last week giving a glimpse into Classical and Contemporary Ballet. Costuming, lighting and of course the dancing was impeccable. The shear strength and stamina of the dancers left even our rugby boys flabbergasted! It did help that students were fortunate enough to have workshops prior to the actual ballet where they were put through the steps and jumps of one of the dances in the program. A real life experience of how hard and challenging only one piece of the dance was.
We were not allowed to take photos or film the performance, however, St Patricks performance was videoed. What started as a group of 3 senior boys entertaining their younger children became a whole school event entertaining the whole lobby and other schools.
