You've done it. You’ve chosen me a name and I’m delighted!
Although it may not seem like it with this weather, the summer is here and so our regular classes are drawing to a close for the summer holidays. To mark the end of term and to celebrate a couple of significant birthdays (I obviously can’t give their ages away, but you wouldn’t believe me anyway as their youthful looks belie their years), our Dancing for the Over 55s class held a picnic lunch after their class this week.
Friday was a day of recovery for the Learning team as the START project came to an end for another year. On Thursday we had 550 young people (plus their teachers) watching the performance of Madame Butterfly at Leeds Grand Theatre and the atmosphere in the theatre was electric.
This resource pack is designed to give teachers an insight into Northern Ballet's production of Madame Butterfly, and toprovide practical ideas and tasks that can be used in the classroom. It is particularly suitable for teachers working with pupils in dance and drama. It also provides some signposts for links with other areas of the curriculum.
As the lead artist on the Easter Course I’m getting really excited as we will be working in partnership with International Puppet Artist and Physical Theatre Performer, Rebekha Caputo.
We run a variety of courses for all ages and abilities.
This resource pack is designed to give teachers an insight into Northern Ballet's production of Peter Pan. It is suitable for Key Stages 2, 3 and 4 and provides practical ideas and tasks that can be used in the classroom.
This resource pack is designed to give teachers an insight into Northern Ballet’s production of A Simple Man, to enable teachers to prepare students for a visit to the theatre or to use this production as a stimulus for creative work in the classroom.
This resource pack aims to give teachers a rich, stimulating set of materials to teach dance and other related subjects at Keystage 3 (with adaptations for Keystage 2). You can use this pack to build your own lesson plans and schemes of work with information and creative ideas drawn from Northern Ballet's production of The Three Musketeers. As well as dance performance, composition and appreciation, the pack signposts subject material for Design, Music, English, Drama, History and PSHE.

The START project enables young people, who wouldn't normally have the opportunity to access the arts, to take part in dance activities and to visit local theatres. “ 'This is one of the best projects that I have ever been involved in and I have been teaching for 30 years!'
