One of the southern hemisphere's leading dance conservatoires, the New Zealand School of Dance offers world class training in classical ballet and contemporary dance. The School's full-time training prepares dancers for a career in professional dance performance.

The school offers two or three-year qualifications for students aged between 16 to 20. Auditions are held annually in Sept/Oct in NZ and Australia. International students may submit a video audition. Students are required to have reached certain levels of dance and academic achievement and have a good level of conversational English to study at the School.

On average 80% of graduates gain work within six months, with many joining major Australasian and international dance companies.
