Northern Ballet Family Workshop

Published on

Ok, so hands up – I work for Northern Ballet and I have danced in the past, so I’m quite confident with this sort of thing but this was my first experience of one of Northern Ballet’s family fun workshops so I wasn’t sure what to expect. There were about 30 of us in the workshop and the children’s ages ranged from 4 to 11 years old. I took my son Douglas, aged 5, who suffers from the affliction that seems to affect lots of young boys - the inability to sit still!

The Flex

Published on

For the last couple of weeks I’ve been traveling up to Durham on a Wednesday to work with The Flex Dance Company. Run by TIN Arts, The Flex is a company of 9 artists with learning disabilities who come together to create, devise and perform new contemporary dance work. TIN Arts is quite an inspirational organisation who deliver arts programmes for people of all ages and abilities over the North east so for me it’s a brilliant opportunity to work other experienced artists who are experts in this field. I was immediately made to feel very welcome and quickly got to know everyone.
