A New Era for Northern Ballet Academy

Published on

It has been a very strange week for Northern Ballet Academy. With the Company only moving into the building last Monday we made the decision to move the Academy across a week later so that staff could fully get to grips with the building before more than 200 academy students came through the doors.

I have spent my week going back and forth from Quarry Hill in the daytime to West Park in the evenings and it really has made me realise quite how lucky the Academy is.

On Wednesday night 9pm BBC2 resumes its Wonderland series with a documentary about a group of boy cheerleaders in South Leeds. Northern Ballet features when one of the boys auditions for the Academy.

It's a brilliant documentary (not just for the winning performances from Cara, Hannah and Viki) and well worth watching. Visit the BBC website for further details.

We've moved!

Published on

It’s finally happened! On Monday Northern Ballet and Phoenix took up residence in our stunning new powerhouse for dance in the centre of Leeds. Don't forget to update your address book with our new contact details.

The first week has been very exciting, learning our way around the building and making use of the terrific facilities it has to offer.  By the time the Northern Ballet dancers return from their national tour on 18 October we will have settled in nicely and be ready to welcome them with open arms to their new home.
