A Very Special Day Out At Northern Ballet Nutcracker

Nutcracker at the Leeds Grand Theatre

Last week (30th November 2023) Moorland Ballet Academy visited The Grand Theatre to watch a captivating performance of the  Northern Ballet Nutcracker in Leeds. The students had an incredible day alongside Moorland Ballet Academy Directors, Lynsey and Simon Kidd which brought a truly magical Christmas spirit! 

 

Our ballet students went around the Christmas Markets in Leeds taking in the festive magic and visiting some famous landmarks in the city, enjoying a student favourite Wagamamas, before sitting down to watch the show.

 

Theatre visits are hugely important and inspirational for our students’ motivation and they form a crucial part of learning and development at Moorland Ballet Academy. It also allows our students to be social whilst also giving them the opportunity to learn and be educated by some of the countries leading ballerinas. 

 

The team and students had a brilliant day and we’re really looking forward to our next visit.
