SpringBoard creates opportunities for young people to achieve positive outcomes and pathways to success. They focus on personal wellbeing by creating a place of belonging and celebrating one-to-one connections, whilst also engaging family and the wider community. Police in the Rodney area saw Springboard’s work as the primary contributor to the significant reduction of youth crime in Rodney in recent years.
The New Zealand Dance Company (NZDC), launched in 2012 by co-founders Shona McCullagh and Frances Turner, is dedicated to providing full-time professional employment for Aotearoa’s finest dance practitioners.
The Company has rapidly secured its place as an arts leader in Australasia securing six international tours in five years, an outstanding achievement for an innovative, adolescent company.
NZDC is Tāmaki Makaurau based, but tours New Zealand annually also, bringing productions of excellence to the regions, main hubs, youth justice facilities and remote areas of Aotearoa, creating access for as many Kiwis as we can.
