The START project, supported by The Prince's Foundation for Children and the Arts, has allowed over 450 school children from Leeds to enjoy workshops and performances by Northern Ballet over the past two terms. Here's a glimpse into the project...
'Mature Movers' is a creative movement workshop that is fully accessible. Following a warm up participants are taught a section of a ballet with accompaniment from a live musician. This workshop took place on the stage of Leeds Grand Theatre on March 4, 2010 where the dancers learned The Knight's Dance section of Northern Ballet's production of Romeo & Juliet.
Over 400 school children attended a performance of Northern Ballet's A Christmas Carol at Leeds Grand Theatre on 10 December, 2009 as part of our START Project. Here children talk about their experiences, for many it was their first taste of ballet. START is supported by The Princes Foundation for Children and the Arts and is in partnership with Leeds Grand Theatre. Photos by Brian Slater.
