Mini Movers & Moving Minis
For the past year I have looked forward to Thursday mornings. On a day to day basis Northern Ballet is a pretty special place to be and I do enjoy coming into work each day but Thursday mornings are extra special - it’s Mini’s Morning - and as I come through the doors I'm greeted by our youngest generation of Academy students.

On Saturday 12 May 2012, along with Phoenix Dance Theatre we held our second Open House inviting everyone to come in, take a look around our home, gain an insight into the workings of two dance companies, take part in taster classes and watch free performances.
Brian Slater was on hand to photograph the day, the activities and the fun being had by visitors and staff alike.

Before Christmas we held a party for our Mini Movers and Moving Minis (classes for children aged 18months - 4years old).
We had loads of fun singing Christmas songs and playing in the bubble machine and then finished the morning off with mince pies and orange juice. Lani and Sharon (both aged 3) had a great time filming these short clips to tell you how they got on!
We have seen a huge improvement in our Minis this term - lots more confidence and rhythm! We can’t wait to see everyone again for the start of the spring term in January.

Last Thursday the dark early evening rain and wind intensified the atmosphere of suspense and expectation around the Leeds Town Hall Crypt, as the first set of people came along to find out more about OverWorlds & UnderWorlds, the first major public-arts project by Leeds Canvas, planned for next year.
