Hallé for Youth 2019: Conflict and Resolution
Northern Ballet School has been delighted to continue its partnership with Hallé Education, in Hallé for Youth 2019.
The annual creative arts project; set to accompany the Hallé's series of schools' concerts, gives pupils from two Greater Manchester boroughs the opportunity to challenge their creativity through music, dance and visual arts.
On this year's project, students from NBS worked with pupils from four Primary schools in Bury and Wigan. Students in Years 5 and 6 were visited by musicians from the Hallé, to help them devise their own creative music piece. NBS students then choreographed a dance piece using the music fused with another piece chosen by themselves.
The project also invited Allison Clarke, a local visual artist, to visit the students and help to create some costumes and art work to go alongside their music and dance creations. The project culminated in a performance at The Bridgewater Hall.
