For the last couple of weeks I’ve been traveling up to Durham on a Wednesday to work with The Flex Dance Company. Run by TIN Arts, The Flex is a company of 9 artists with learning disabilities who come together to create, devise and perform new contemporary dance work. TIN Arts is quite an inspirational organisation who deliver arts programmes for people of all ages and abilities over the North east so for me it’s a brilliant opportunity to work other experienced artists who are experts in this field. I was immediately made to feel very welcome and quickly got to know everyone.
Northern Ballet offers a range of opportunities for you to take a step closer to the Company and find out more about our productions during your visit to the theatre.
Pupils from Thorn Park School for the Deaf in Bradford have produced a video reporting on their experiences of learning ballet for Headliners, a UK charity which encourages personal development through journalism. The students were taught by Northern Ballet Theatre's Dance Education Officer, Caroline Burn and Learning & Access Musician, Dave Burnett.
Over the last couple of weeks Sophie Alder (Dance Education Officer) has been visiting Shepherds Lane Children’s Centre in Leeds working with the pupils to explore the tale of ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ through music and dance.
'Mature Movers' is a creative movement workshop that is fully accessible. Following a warm up participants are taught a section of a ballet with accompaniment from a live musician. This workshop took place on the stage of Leeds Grand Theatre on March 4, 2010 where the dancers learned The Knight's Dance section of Northern Ballet's production of Romeo & Juliet.
