Kiwi choreographer Paris Goebel to represent New Zealand at World Expo in Dubai

Kiwi choreographer Parris Goebel has taken on the role of New Zealand's entertainment and cultural curator at the World Expo in Dubai next year. 

It's the first expo New Zealand's attended since 2010 and the star dancer has been recruited to make sure our pavilion shines. 

The Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern met with the head of dance crew the Royal Family on Friday, to discuss a deal that will see Parris Goebel and her Royal Family crew put New Zealand centre stage at the world expo in Dubai next year.

"It's time for New Zealand to stand up and say hey we're amazing and let's show you guys what we've got," Goebel told Newshub.

50 million dollars has been invested in doing just that. 

Parris's project which will centre on music, dance and street art is designed to lure millions of visitors into the Kiwi pavilion where New Zealand exporters will be selling themselves.

"We can't underestimate how important it is, when we have 25 million people coming through a pavilion, to lift their profile on the world stage," said Ardern.

But with 192 countries involved standing out is essential.

Something Goebel is no stranger to, with her dance moves viewed more than 10 billion times online.

"For me, this is it, this is an honour for me, it's one of the things I value more than any other job I've done," 

A big call from someone who's worked with A-listers such as Ciara, Rihanna, Justin Bieber.

And just this year was recruited to teach British pop star Sam Smith how to dance.

Now Gobel has a new student in her sights - the Prime Minister.

"She's already told me that she used to tap dance," said Goebel.

But Ardern isn't so sure, saying she only ever danced "very badly!"

Shoulder-tapping Parris Goebel for the job might be the closest we get to seeing that for ourselves.
