We believe that there is a dancer in everyone so now is your chance to shine!
The aim of our senior summer school is to prepare students for company life, to help them to understand the demands of a professional career on their bodies and the discipline required to prevent injury. Students will learn the fundamentals of the Ichino technique - a pre-requisite for acceptance by Northern Ballet.
Mission Northern Ballet's Associate training programme was established in 1998 and today attracts students from as far afield as Glasgow, Birmingham and Liverpool. Students in the Associate Division are aged between 10 and 16 years old and currently contemplating a career in dance. The students attend regular weekly enhancement classes at the Academy, in addition to their regular training elsewhere, to help prepare them for future full-time vocational training. “
The International Easter Course is open to students who are already in full-time classical ballet training as well as students on classical associate programmes.
All our dance classes take place in our new building on Quarry Hill in central Leeds. These world-class facilities boast 7 large dance studios, including Europe's largest dance studio, changing facilities and a café.
