A new term for open classes
Thu 1 August, 2013
We're really looking to our classes starting back next term. Registration forms are coming in thick and fast - so much so that many of our classes are close to capacity and some are already full!
Don't worry though, we still have spaces in the Minis' classes, Ballet 1 on Wednesday & Thursday, Ballet 3 on Tuesday & Thursday, Jazz classes plus many more!

Tuning up for Violin at the Movies
Fri 10 May, 2013
One of the best things about
for me is that I’ll be working with my old friend Gavin Sutherland. Long term followers of Northern Ballet will remember that Gavin used to be Assistant Conductor here many years ago, before leaving to pursue a freelance career as conductor, pianist and arranger. The Violin at the Movies
