Christchurch Ballet Society

The Christchurch Ballet Society is a non-profit organisation, that was formed in 1961. The aim of the Ballet Society is to assist, encourage, develop and promote the art of dance in the Canterbury region. 

Our Mission Statement:

·       To encourage, foster and promote the practice and appreciation of Dance in New Zealand and more particularly the Canterbury District

·       To assist artists considered by the Committee to be of sufficient ability as to further the study and practice of their art by way of grants, scholarship and or other financial assistance when and where possible

·        To promote harmony and good will amongst all schools, teachers and students of dance

We are administered by an elected committee of volunteers. We encourage others who have a passion for dance to join us by becoming members of the Society.  As a member you will receive notification of upcoming events, workshops, training and general information about dance in the region.

We send out a newsletter and can also offer member discounts to some of the events we support.

As a teacher in the Canterbury region, membership offers you the chance to promote your school through our website.   Through the society you also have the opportunity to network with other teachers in the region and to leverage our collective knowledge.
