Ilkley ballet masterclasses prove popular
2:21pm Thursday 6th March 2014 in News
Hundreds of children were huffing and puffing and having fun at Three Little Pigs ballet workshops this weekend.
Youngsters at Northern Dance Centre’s Ilkley and Skipton special master-classes got the chance to work with professionals from the Northern Ballet Theatre (NBT) and learn some creative moves.
The workshops are based on The Three Little Pigs ballet devised by the NBT to get more boys and girls interested in dance.
Amy Addison, who is Northern Dance Centre’s principal, said: “The children’s imaginations were completely captured, they were dancing beautifully without knowing they were working hard. They were so caught up in the story.
“It’s very clever of the Northern Ballet Theatre to come up with this idea. It was such a fantastic opportunity for us.
“The response we got to the workshops and people wanting to get involved was huge, we had hundreds of children all day.”
