Shona McCullagh and the New Zealand Dance Company

By Jenny Stevenson

To say that Shona McCullagh is a high-achiever is merely to state the obvious. Throughout her impressive career she has consistently aimed for the stars, achieving considerable acclaim as a dancer, choreographer, artistic-director, filmmaker, teacher, kinaesthetic visual artist, and talent-management director. In recognition of her services to dance she was honoured in 2002 as a New Zealand Arts Foundation Laureate.  Most recently, Shona choreographed the impressive Rugby World Cup opening ceremony.
