Hello Everyone, what a busy weekend we’ve all had!
Quack! Hello everyone, sorry I haven’t been in touch for a while but I have been travelling the country alongside my good friend Ugly who has been performing Ugly Duckling in the North & South!
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.
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!
The snow had gone as we prepared for the third week of our dance project based around the Earth, Sun and Moon. With only two sessions left before our big celebration open day, we had to be eager to refine and practice our routines before our parents would get to see the show.
