We still have places available on our Easter Course 2015, which this year will be inspired by Northern Ballet’s production of Elves & the Shoemaker.
This week is National Apprenticeship week and as Northern Ballet’s first Dance Education Apprentice, I wanted to talk about the benefits of my apprenticeship.
Northern Ballet is preparing to welcome 900 students and teachers from over 20 schools and colleges in West Yorkshire to a special dedicated performance of the Company’s new Romeo and Juliet at Leeds Grand Theatre on 11 March. The performance, which falls during National Apprentice Week, is a key part of the Grand Futures Leeds Arts Partnership and Northern Ballet’s START project which together aim to introduce young people to the arts and the potential opportunities for a future career within the arts industry.
I’m not sure if you’re aware of our ‘spotted’ scheme delivered in partnership by Learning and the Academy to ‘spot’ and nurture potential ballet talent in Leeds?

I have recently been on a two day training course with Stopgap Dance Company exploring inclusive dance teaching. It was an inspiring couple of days and I really enjoyed meeting different teachers and dancers from across Yorkshire. The time and space to work with different teachers allowed me to research deeper in to different techniques to ensure our offer of dance at Northern Ballet is accessible, innovative and inspiring.
We are exploring new ways of engaging people with learning more about ballet through online applications. We have been working with Bedford Interactive through funding from the Arts Council England to develop software and content that can be used to develop dance appreciation skills and we would like feedback on using it. We'd like you to try out the app and tell us what you think.
Last week Arts Council England outlined its Creative Case for Diversity. In his launch speech the Chair of Arts Council England, Sir Peter Bazalgette (Baz), placed responsibility on every funded organisation to make their programme of work more reflective of the communities they serve.
It has been an exciting first month in my new role as Dance Education Officer within the Learning Department at Northern Ballet. I have recently returned from my first trip on tour with the Company at Nottingham Theatre Royal for the production The Great Gatsby. I had a fabulous group of over 55s for a workshop which took place on the stage. The group was such a pleasure to teach!
