Over 50s in Ilkley

Our over 50s classes are some of the most popular on the Academy’s busy timetable. This term, not only do we have classes here at Northern Ballet HQ and in Gomersal, we are also running a six week course at The Yoga Barre in Ilkley.

A boutique studio situated in the heart of the beautiful town of Ilkley, The Yoga Barre is the perfect venue to experience the fun of our over 50s classes, led by teacher Annemarie Donoghue.

Following a six week course which ran through September and October, we had some fantastic feedback from participants:

‘I have never done ballet before and I absolutely love this class. It is in no way intimidating but really enjoyable and I feel I have made progress even after three lessons. Annemarie is a fantastic teacher.’

‘This course is perfect for both beginners and improvers. Annemarie is a special teacher with the ability to adapt to her students. The venue at Ilkley is perfect for a small group which ensures you receive a more personal critique. Thank you.’

If you would like to join the next course, a great way to socialise, keep fit and improve posture, it runs every Wednesday from 1 November, 11am – 12pm at a cost of £55.
