Southern Ballet and Dance Theatre

The programme for a Southern Ballet and Dance Theatre tour undertaken during Russell Kerr's directorship (1978–90) included works by four New Zealand choreographers (Russell Kerr, Patricia Rianne, Jamie Bull and Liz Davey). The company was at its height at this time, touring successfully and running an active schools programme.
