Northern Ballet's The Great Gatsby: Over 55s Workshop

Presented by Northern Ballet Limited
Leeds Grand Theatre

Taking place on stage, Northern Ballet’s workshops are suitable for those with dance experience or beginners with a secret desire to dance.

Take part in a gentle ballet warm up before learning some steps from The Great Gatsby and getting creative. Whatever your age or ability, ex-Premier dancer Pippa Moore MBE* will guide you through the session, leaving you feeling fresh, inspired and empowered!

Following the workshop, participants will have the chance to join us for Northern Ballet Revealed. Get an insight into the life of a touring ballet company. Find out what it takes to bring a production to life as we reveal secrets from behind the scenes. Get a sneak peak of costumes and props and ask questions about the Company and our productions. You’ll then have the chance to watch the Company dancers in their daily ballet class as they warm up for the performance – a real treat!

*In circumstances where Pippa Moore is unavailable, talks will be delivered by another member of Northern Ballet staff.
