The sessions were open to children, aged between nine and 15, and there was also a dedicated boys only session.

The sessions are aimed to give prospective students the chance to explore the Leeds dance school and practice with state-of-the art facilities.

Yasmin Delves from Northern Ballet said: “The Academy of Northern Ballet is one of the leading classical ballet training schools in the UK. Our focus is on recognising talent and nurturing our students to give them the training and mentoring they need to develop as dancers.”
