The Royal New Zealand Ballet is coming back in August for more Ballet Storytimes in the library. They were so popular during the school holidays, you won’t want to miss them this time!
Legendary dancer and performer Sir Jon Trimmer introduces A Midsummer Night’s Dream – one of Shakespeare’s best-loved stories that has inspired generations of choreographers and dancers around the world – ahead of the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s brand new production, opening in Wellington on 20 August.
Perfect for primary school aged children, this is a chance to learn about ballet steps and positions – and to try them out– explore the art of mime and gesture, and hear one of the wonderful stories of the world’s greatest ballets, from an icon of New Zealand dance who has performed them all.

Saturday 8th August: Karori Library at 11am
Saturday 15th August: Johnsonville Library at 11am
