The Academy of Northern Ballet in Leeds provides world-class, non-residential dance training to all ages and abilities.

Northern Ballet Academy is the only recognised Centre for Advanced Training specialising in Classical Ballet in the UK. We offer training programmes both at a Professional Level and a recreational level.
All students benefit from the same teaching method developed by our renowned Ballet Mistress, Yoko Ichino. We take a holistic approach to teaching, nurturing and inspiring our students to become balanced and healthy dancers.
“...this was not just a demonstration of danse d’ecole steps but an assertive and pleasing performance on a large scale that was well drilled and sharp; a credit to the outstanding teaching of the Academy.” Read more
