Brontë birthday at the gallery

Published on

A couple of weeks ago we celebrated the birthday of a very special lady. Not the Queen (though we do hope you had a lovely 90th birthday Your Majesty!) but Charlotte Brontë, the inspirational author whose most famous novel Jane Eyre is destined to become the newest addition to our repertoire. Born on 21 April 1816, this year is the 200th anniversary of her birth triggering an international celebration of her life, works and all things Brontë.

Academy's first ever Dance-A-Thon

Published on

This Sunday the Academy of Northern Ballet held it's first ever Dance-A-Thon to raise money to support students in need of assistance across all of our Accademy programmes and to enable us to buy new equipment for all Academy students to use.

Our staff and students along with their families and friends took part in a sponsored four hour continuous dance during the day which also included face painting, games and stalls including a tasty cake stand.

We'd like to thank everyone that took part in what was a fantastic and fun day!
