Choreolab by Footnote New Zealand Dance is firmly established as the most significant professional development event for dance practitioners in Aotearoa New Zealand, drawing artists from around the country to the capital each summer.

Workshop Info

A Floor, Some Thoughts, and Us

With its trademark exploratory energy, this year’s ChoreoCo show, A Floor, Some Thoughts, and Us, will provide essential escapism from the everyday. A regular feature on the New Zealand Fringe Festival calendar, ChoreoCo is Footnote’s short-term company of exciting dance artists. Devised by dynamic choreographer Jeremy Beck, at the heart of A Floor, Some Thoughts, and Us lies a curiosity about the nature of creativity. Use these 50 minutes to forget about the daily grind and get pulled into something new.

Student Secondment Applications Open

Footnote New Zealand Dance is delighted to be seeking expressions of interest for a number of student secondment positions during 2021.

Our secondments provide an opportunity for final year tertiary dance students to join our company members for one week, either during a choreographic development process for one of our 2021 seasons, or during our Dance in Education programme where company members lead workshops in schools. This is a chance to immerse yourself in the environment at Footnote New Zealand Dance and experience the inner workings of a professional company. Due to activity there will be limited secondment positions available.

Applications close on 14th February 2021
