Here in the Learning office, we have been busy tidying up after last week’s jam-packed Summer Course. 43 children aged between seven and eleven from across Yorkshire took part and explored different ideas on the theme of a ‘Summer Picnic’.
This summer Leeds International Piano Competition is presenting Me & My Piano, an exciting art installation coming to the city of Leeds. Running from 22 August - 10 September 12 pianos will be placed around the city free for the public to play and engage with.
After weeks of discussing, planning, filming and refining, our film Introducing…Ability is finally complete. Creating a dance film was completely new to all the dancers and it was the first time Sophie and I had worked this way with a group together. Sophie said, 'It was a learning curve for all of us and a process we’d all like to repeat.'
Since November last year, the Learning Team have been delivering the START project to 21 schools from across the region, engaging children who don’t normally have access to the arts, with ballet and live theatre.
