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.
Former CAT student Matthew Topliss (Northern Ballet Academy 2005 - 09) is now in his third year with the Royal Conservatoire Scotland. He is currently working with Scottish Ballet as part of the cast for Ashley Page's production of Sleeping Beauty, performing in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Inverness and Newcastle. Viki Westall, Northern Ballet Academy Deputy Associate Director, caught up with him in a short break between rehearsals.
Recently the Northern Ballet Academy students had the chance to take a trip to the Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre to watch Phoenix Dance Theatre’s latest performance of Declarations; a combination of four short works.
Over the past 3 years Northern Ballet Academy has been taking part in a Dance Science Research Project which has been looking at the development of dance talent in young people. Along with the other seven Centres for Advanced Training in Dance across the country our professional division students were monitored and interviewed over a three year period.
Northern Ballet Academy are starting a number of new classes for adults in September. We will be continuing to run our ever popular adult ballet classes for all levels but will also be introducing Pilates and a brand new concept ‘Ballet Fusion’. Ballet Fusion will be a fitness class based around ballet technique and basic principles of proper posture and core stability whilst getting your heart pumping. It has been designed to improve the students flexibility and over all fitness in a friendly atmosphere.
