Northern Ballet Taster
As part of their National tour to Edinburgh, Northern Ballet in partnership with Capital Theatres are offering a FREE taster workshop for young people aged 12-18. For those that take part there will also be an opportunity to attend a Northern Ballet ‘Revealed’ event where you can experience the company rehearsing, meet some of the creative team and hear about the process of creation.
In order to give you the full experience you will then be invited to watch the production of Victoria on 11th April at the theatre at 2:30pm for free.
The workshop includes an introduction to dance for your group and an insight into the production of Victoria. Following a fun warm-up, you will explore the story and characters from the production developing your creativity through movement and storytelling. A dance artist from Northern Ballet dance will encourage you to release your imagination through creative tasks, teaching some basic ballet technique along the way.
