Audience Tickets are sold through normal venue outlets - we will advise each region’s schools when they are available. Please note that ticket prices vary around the country as they are dependent on venue cost

 

Complimentary Tickets:

At competition/show time we encourage teaching staff to be back stage and all other supporters out front to give our dancers an audience. For this reason we do not provide complimentary tickets.

"I can't speak highly enough about your DanceNZmade Interschool. The kids really get into the supportive learning atmosphere,take away new skills, and it isn't the logistical nightmare of other dance based competitions. Our kids just want to take part and see others dance and cheer each other on. It's fantastic."
