Whether it’s pre-schoolers or seniors, Scottish dancing or salsa, kapa haka or Kathak, breakdance or ballet – if you’re encouraging people of all ages and abilities to keep moving through dance, we have three Love to Dance grants up for grabs.
Receive one of three $5,000 grants to spend on equipment, transport, costumes or anything you need to support your community’s love of dance.
Dance is about so much more than learning a routine. It’s about connection, creativity, physical movement and fun. These aspects all play a part in the activities we have on offer at Ryman villages.
Our long-standing partnership with The Royal New Zealand Ballet (RNZB) reflects our residents’ love of the arts, performance and dance.
The Royal New Zealand Ballet’s (RNZB) performance of the Ryman Healthcare Season of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at the Opera House in Wellington was an unexpected treat for our local residents.
Ballet has been a lifelong passion for Margaret Stoddart Retirement Village resident Audrey Burton. Audrey’s love for dancing has not dimmed and at 85 years old she still dances whenever she can.
Joining the Triple A session at William Sanders Retirement Village were Royal New Zealand Ballet stars Shaun Kelly and Mayu Tanigaito, who enthusiastically took part in the circuit session.
