Ballet Foundation "A Celebration of Ballet"

It was ballet's turn in the spotlight this evening at Government House, with Dame Patsy and Sir David hosting the Ballet Foundation's "A Celebration of Ballet" in the Ballroom.

The Ballet Foundation is a charity that works to support, promote and advance ballet in New Zealand. They work closely with the Royal New Zealand Ballet, offering scholarships to talented dancers, helping dancers move from performance into other dance -related careers and providing opportunities for students from low-decile schools to experience ballet performances.

The evening featured performances from Teagan Tank from the New Zealand School of Dance and Katherine Minor and Paul Mathews from the Royal New Zealand Ballet.
