We only have a few weeks until Northern Ballet’s Three Little Pigs will be premiering at the Hunslet Club on Sunday 20 October! 
My name is Rose Chadwick and I have recently started my post as Dance Education Officer as maternity cover for Sophie Alder. I've been fortunate enough to have worked with Northern Ballet's Learning team as a freelance dance artist for a number of years and I’m really excited about working with the team and the Company full-time.
Last Saturday the rain stayed away and the Learning team had a wonderful day down at the farm running games and activities to let people know about Three Little Pigs.
Aye up, my name’s Pam and I live on the farm. I like rolling in mud, snuffling for food and eating all the scraps the farmer’s wife throws out. I’ve been really bored of late and I’m ready to try something new, go on adventures and stretch my legs!
During rehearsals dancers may improvise dialogue for their character to better understand their intentions. The audience isn't expected to get everything the dancer has improvised but as the ballet progresses the intentions build allowing a much better understanding.
David Nixon first created this version of A Midsummer Night's Dream at Northern Ballet in 2003, a witty and imaginative production in which the original story is adapted and set in a ballet company in the 1940s. This resource pack is designed to give you more information about the production and an insight into how it was created.
When Northern Ballet produced A Christmas Carol in 1992 it was the first time that the Dickens novel had been performed as a ballet. Produced under the then Artistic Director Christopher Gable, the first performance was on 26th September 1992 at the Theatre Royal, Bath, and has since proved an extremely popular ballet. This resource pack is aimed at teachers of Key Stages 2 and 3 with the option to use the information and ideas presented for other Key Stages.
We are delighted that the Summer Course has almost sold out. We still have 5 places available for the older group (10-14 year-olds) so make sure you book now as the last places will fill up quickly!
A partnership with Northern Ballet will support your student’s learning in a new and inventive way, offering inspirational experiences that will motivate your students to achieve their potential. Working with a world-class dance organisation provides the perfect opportunity to highlight your college’s leading role in providing high quality learning opportunities within the cultural sector.
The Prince's Foundation for Children & the Arts has invited Northern Ballet to be one of their new partners for the Start Hospices project to deliver a programme of activities for families who access Martin House Children’s Hospice in Boston Spa, following Northern Ballet's involvement with the START project for 5 years.
