Summer Course 2017

This page is about our Open Summer course, click here information about our Academy's International Summer school

Join Northern Ballet this summer for a spectacular week of dance and music activities celebrating the joy, colour and movement of carnival.

This fun and energetic course will include a daily ballet class to develop your dance skills and creative movement sessions to ignite your imagination. As well as working with our professional dance artists, you will explore sound and rhythm with a musician and be inspired to create your own steps and sequences.

Participants will also have the opportunity to achieve their Arts Award Discover qualification and share what they have created with family and friends at the end of the course.

So, spark your creativity this summer as you get moving, make new friends and discover something new!
