Wheelchair users enjoying a dance class

In Motion

In Motion – Dance for wheelchair users

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 dance artists, you can explore movement either in or out of a wheelchair and be inspired to create your own movement.

Classes are suitable for wheelchair users of any ability (manual or powered) from age 8 years to adult. Carers are welcome and are invited to join in the class. 

You can dance in your own chair or use one of our specialist dance wheelchairs if you prefer.

In Motion runs in Spring and Summer each year. The 2024 course will be available to book in early 2024.

The course exceeded my expectations... it’s brilliant to be able to whiz around in a wheelchair at some speed and in much more interesting ways that I usually do at home... The standard of teaching is high and staff have been supportive, flexible and adaptable to our needs. The course has challenged me and enabled me to improve so many things!
