Get ready for summer!

Published on Monday 12 June, 2017
The summer is almost here and we’re sure that children and adults alike are looking forward to their holidays. We’re crossing our fingers for more sunny weather!
 
If you are looking for something fun, creative and active for your child to do this summer, look no further than our Learning Summer Course from 21 August – 24 August, suitable for those aged 7 – 11 years.
 
No previous dance experience is required, so whether your child would like a fun introduction to dance or an opportunity to broaden their skills, our course is ideal. This year’s activities are inspired by the 50th anniversary of Leeds’ West Indian Carnival and we will be celebrating the joy, colours and movement of carnival.
 
Led by highly experienced teachers in our state of the art studios, children will take part in a ballet technique class every morning to develop their skills as a dancer and to build their confidence. Children will also explore the music and rhythms of carnival with a professional musician whilst exploring new and exciting ways to move, with opportunities to create their own steps and sequences.
 
Everyone who takes part in the course will have the chance to achieve their Arts Award Discover qualification and share what they have created with family and friends.
 
"My daughter’s self-confidence has grown and she has really enjoyed creating her own choreography, which is very different to her usual ballet classes" (Parent)
 
"This course allows my son to reconnect with his love of dance" (Parent)
Find out more and register or contact Heather Newstead on 0113 220 8000 or heather.newstead@northernballet.com.
 
The closing date for registrations is Monday 31 July
 
So, spark your child’s creativity this summer as they get moving, make new friends and discover something new!
