Repertoire workshops

Using movement and creative dance, repertoire workshops are a fun introduction to ballet for all ages. They offer the opportunity to develop spatial awareness, communication and teamwork skills, and get everyone moving as part of a healthier lifestyle.

You can choose from a range of Northern Ballet productions including Cinderella, Romeo & Juliet and The Nutcracker.

Workshop sessions include a warm-up introducing basic ballet technique, creative work exploring the themes and characters in the production, and a cool down. Tailored to the needs of your group, they will challenge both physically and creatively. Accompanying resources can be provided.

Options include either a half or full day and can include a live musician to accompany the workshop.

Cross-curricular projects

Our cross-curricular projects enable your pupils to physically explore concepts or ideas they might find difficult to grasp in a classroom setting through fun and creative workshops. A Northern Ballet dance artist will work closely with the teacher to select areas of the curriculum to focus on and develop creative tasks and explorations that will achieve agreed outcomes.

These projects develop transferable skills such as problem solving, communication, and team work as well as developing dance skills. Pupils will develop an understanding of National Curriculum units, bringing the subjects to life through movement and use of their bodies, enabling them to learn in a visual and interactive environment. Accompanying resources can be provided.
