Over 50's Ballet in Ilkley

Published on Friday 24 May, 2019

Come and join us!

Did you know that the Academy of Northern Ballet run an Over 50’s beginners’ class in Ilkley? Sessions run on Wednesdays from 11.45 - 12.45 at the Maureen Williams School of Dance and newcomers are welcome. Led by Annemarie Donoghue, classes focus on core strength and stability, providing a fantastic workout full of fun that is balanced with ballet technique.

I have never done ballet before and I absolutely love this class. It is in no way intimidating but really enjoyable and I feel I have made progress even after three lessons. Annemarie is a fantastic teacher.


Our friendly and welcoming classes run as a course in six-week blocks for £60, payable at the first lesson. Come along and give it a try, learn something new and discover your passion for ballet with us. We promise you won’t regret it!

This course is perfect for both beginners and improvers. Annemarie is a special teacher with the ability to adapt to her students.


To find out how to get involved, email us at academy@northernballet.com or call to speak to us on 0113 220 8000.

We look forward to hearing from you.
