Virtual Theatre Visit

We are delighted to launch our new interactive virtual theatre visit, which is now available to use online as preparation for a trip to the theatre or as a fun activity for a school class. This colourful, informative feature shows children what to expect when visiting the theatre and gives them an insight into a venue that they might not be familiar with.

Why not explore the feature during an IT lesson, or as part of their arts provision. The feature includes a quiz on how to behave at the theatre, so is the perfect preparation for their visit to the theatre.

School Workshops

Previous dance experience is not required for any of our workshops and they are the ideal way to involve your pupils/students more in Northern Ballet Theatre productions and to unleash their creativity. Workshops give a deeper understanding of narrative dance and the company’s repertoire and can be used to enhance your existing provision of dance in your school. All our workshops are designed to be fully accessible.

School workshops are currently available to schools in the Belfast, Edinburgh, Llandudno, Manchester, Nottingham, Norwich, Milton Keynes and Yorkshire/surrounding areas (Leeds, Bradford, Huddersfield, Wakefield and Sheffield). If you are outside these areas it may be possible to arrange schools workshops or projects, subject to resources.

Projects and Residencies

As well as one-off school workshops we can offer residencies, projects and partnerships for schools who want to work further with Northern Ballet Theatre. We design and undertake projects with schools, colleges and community groups who wish to work with Northern Ballet Theatre over a number of days (or weeks) to achieve specific aims and objectives. Examples of projects undertaken can be seen by clicking on the case studies below.

Teacher Inset

For teachers who are interested in developing dance in the curriculum or exploring stories through movement. Whatever you or your students level you will be able to take away ideas and techniques to put into practice in the classroom.Acquiring fresh ideas for warm-up exercises, creative tasks, choreography and music, teachers will be able to use Northern Ballet Theatre repertoire as an example to generate dance ideas which can be transferred directly to their class room settings. The majority of each session is practical and teachers are advised to wear loose, comfortable clothing which they can move in.
