Academy of Northern Ballet student, Duncan Anderson, tells us all about his year on the Professional Graduate Programme...
I arrived at Northern Ballet for my first week of the Professional Graduate Programme in August 2014.
Want to learn to dance like the characters in Elves & the Shoemaker? Watch the videos below with Mr Bloom to find out how!
Remember to watch Elves & the Shoemaker on CBeebies at 11am and 5pm on 6 April – and again on iPlayer!
Ahead of the CBeebies television adaptation broadcast of Elves & the Shoemaker over the Easter weekend, Northern Ballet announces that their new ballet for children, Tortoise & the Hare, will have its World Première in Leeds this October followed by an extensive UK tour in spring 2016.
I was lucky enough to attend the Action for Children’s Arts (ACA) Awards 2014 yesterday with Northern Ballet’s Director of Learning Selina McGonagle, to accept the Outstanding Contribution Award to Children’s Arts on behalf of Northern Ballet. The ceremony was held in the fantastic BBC Radio Theatre at Broadcasting House in London and we felt really honoured to be part of what was a really special afternoon.
Northern Ballet has once again teamed up with CBeebies in a television adaptation of its second ballet for children, Three Little Pigs. CBeebies Three Little Pigs will be broadcast on Easter Monday at 11am and 5pm.
