in motion

Let your creativity flourish and gain the confidence to move in new ways through our specialist wheelchair dance programme, in motion.

Classes are designed to develop your strength, flexibility and creative expression through Northern Ballet’s unique training methods. Working in a supportive environment with our expert teachers, you can explore movement either in or out of a wheelchair and be inspired to create your own movement.

Classes are suitable for self-propelling wheelchair users (manual or powered) and are split into two age groups; those aged 8 – 19 years and those aged 19 and over.

Specialist dance/sports wheelchairs are not required as we have a number available to use in classes should you wish.
