Joining the elite ‘Ballet Company’ is the pinnacle of a dancer’s experience at St Andrew’s College. Becoming one of the ‘senior’ dancers, in Years 11-13, is an opportunity to reach the highest goals in student training and to represent oneself as a role-model to our junior students who aspire to join the Company in the future.
The ‘Company’ follows on from the Years 9-10 ‘Ballet and Dance Studies’ subject and offers five plus hours of training per week. Dancers enjoy high level tuition across the genres, continue to gain NCEA credits, and can achieve both their Advanced Diploma (awarding them with A.NZAMD) and the Solo Performance Diploma.
