In its hunt for the dance stars of the future, Northern Ballet is hosting its annual series of open days in York, Sheffield, Huddersfield and Leeds between 30 January and 20 February. The open days offer young dance enthusiasts, between the ages of 10 and 15, the chance to meet Northern Ballet Academy staff, find out more about our training programmes and technique and take part in a ballet or creative dance class.
This prospectus relates to 2013 and is kept here for archive purposes only. As the official training school of Northern Ballet our Academy offers expert training to all regardless of age or previous experience. Whether you aspire to become a professional dancer or want to dance for fun we have something for you.
Under the guidance of Northern Ballet’s Artistic Director and Academy Director, David Nixon OBE, our classes are led by our highly experienced teaching faculty in the same state-of-the-art building in which Northern Ballet’s Company Dancers train.
“ 'Our building is a centre of excellence for dance in the North of England, a place that will complement the best dance spaces and training schools in the UK.'
“ 'Yoko's teaching methods didn't just develop my technique, they changed my way of thinking and prepared me both physically and mentally to face the challenges of a career in dance.'
