A diverse group of Residents from 19 countries own the homes onboard and share interests in world cultures, history and adventure, and exploring fascinating destinations. They circumnavigate the globe every two to three years following an extraordinary itinerary that they select. In-depth expeditions and one-of-a-kind experiences are complemented by world-class amenities and impeccable service.

At our event, we will be inviting you to bid on a seven night voyage on this amazing yacht and your winning bid will include:

The Ballet Foundation of New Zealand would like to sincerely thank The World® for this very generous donation.  As you can imagine, they receive numerous requests for auction donations each year and the Ballet Foundation of New Zealand was chosen as one of only a select few from around the globe to receive a multi-night voyage from The World® to help us raise money to support Ballet in New Zealand.

 


 

Auckland: A Celebration of Ballet

On behalf of the Ballet Foundation trustees, warm thanks to all who attended our fundraising event in Auckland on 7 March! Over 200 guests joined us for a fantastic evening at St Matthew-in-the-City. Over $50,000 was raised through ticket sales and an auction that included spectacular art, bespoke jewellery, travel opportunities and dinner with the Rt Hon Bill English. This wonderful support will enhance the Foundation’s continued work to develop and sustain ballet in New Zealand.

The evening’s festivities included performances by two dancers from the Royal New Zealand Ballet and the New Zealand School of Dance. NZSD student Saul Newport performed a selection from Tomasson’s Meistens Mozart and RNZB dancer Laura Saxon Jones performed Fokine’s seminal work The Dying Swan. As our national ballet company, the RNZB is vital to the continued development of ballet in New Zealand, and its official ballet school, the NZSD, is a leader in dance training for students from here and overseas. The Foundation is pleased to sponsor both organisations as well as to provide grants for other ballet initiatives in New Zealand.

We were delighted to conclude the evening with a few words from the Prime Minister, the Rt Hon Bill English, who attended the event and shared his enthusiasm for ballet and the work of the Foundation.

We hope to see you soon and encourage you to support the Foundation’s work through donations and by attending future events.
