Wainuiomata High School
Art form: Dance / Ballet
Project name: The Kani Club
Project information: This project will introduce ballet and expose students to the benefits of this artform which many of them will not have experienced. Students will learn to develop new skills that will extend students’ creativity and improve well-being and confidence, discipline and resilience. The students will work together as a team, establishing new relationships and eventually moulding their own background and experience into what they have learnt about ballet and dance.
In addition to participating in the workshops, the students will have the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learnt for their whānau and friends, attend performances by the Royal New Zealand Ballet, and learn about the various career opportunities which arise out of involvement in the arts, including; stage management and technicians, costuming, ticketing, music and marketing etc.
Project starting: February 2021
