NBT Dancers Spread Festive Cheer on School Roadshow

Pupils at Armley Primary School in Leeds got a special treat on Tuesday when dancers Anna Blackwell and Daniel Clarke came along to speak to pupils as part of Northern Ballet Theatre’s School Roadshow. The Armley pupils were delighted to meet the dancers and were especially excited to see them in costume and even demonstrating a few ballet moves.

Anna said, “It’s great to come and meet school children in Leeds, especially when they are coming to see the performance like these children are on Thursday. They all seemed to learn something new about ballet, it was lovely to meet them all and speak to them about life as a professional dancer.”

    This is such a fantastic idea! I would have loved it as a child. I took my class to see A Christmas Carol and they were blown away.
