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 self-propelling wheelchair users (manual or powered) and are split into two age groups: 8 – 19 years and 19+.

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

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!

Classes 2020

Unfortunately the in motion course cannot run as planned in 2020 due to the current Covid-19 outbreak. We look forward to being back and dancing with you as soon as possible, so watch this space for updates.
