Greer Robertson

Artistic Director

Greer has been a guiding force in the artistic direction of Raise since first coming to teach for Raising the Barre in 2012 soon after her arrival to Wellington from Christchurch.

Born in Dunedin, Greer studied on Scholarship at The National School of Ballet now the New Zealand School of Dance where she uniquely graduated both as a dancer and teacher. Her career flourished as a dancer with the Royal New Zealand Ballet and as a teacher worked alongside Joan Irvine and Russell Kerr QSM at Southern Ballet and Dance Theatre as Senior School Tutor and Ballet Mistress to the fulltime company.

Before founding her own studios DanceWorld based in Christchurch, Greer produced and mentored many nationally and internationally acclaimed dancers: Gaylene Cummerfield, Principal Dancer The Royal Birmingham Ballet; Geordan Wilcox, RNZB; Toby Behan, RNZB and Creative NZ; Raewyn Hill, Director Dance North; contemporary choreographer and dancer Ross McCormack, to name but a few.

On a daily basis Greer teaches dancers from a variety of genres, athletes from all forms of sports, as well as singers and actors.

She has devised Body Mechanics specialised flexibility training for elite athletes, created dance courses for NASDA and Canterbury Opera Youth and choreographed over a dozen operas. With her events organisation, Greer choreographed and directed an enormous variety and styles of works, often with high profiles such as the Netball World Cup Opening and Closing Ceremonies and the Youth Variety Concert for Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II.
