NEW ZEALAND SCHOOL OF DANCE: 50 YEARS 1967-2017 TURID REVFEIM (NEW ZEALAND SCHOOL OF DANCE, $39)

North & South - - Review -

The New Zealand School of Dance, for­merly the Na­tional School of Bal­let, cel­e­brates its first half-cen­tury with the pub­li­ca­tion of this most el­e­gantly de­signed – by Neil Pard­ing­ton – and pro­duced vol­ume. For­mer pupil and now teacher Turid Revfeim sup­plies the words with im­ages by Stephen A’court, whose pho­to­graphs ac­com­pany many valu­able his­toric pic­tures that are also in­cluded. Writ­ing about bal­let is a chal­leng­ing feat, but Revfeim man­ages to cover the school’s his­tory in an ac­ces­si­ble man­ner. How­ever, it’s the pho­tos by A’court, who has been shoot­ing the school’s dancers since 1994, that will garner most at­ten­tion.
