Hundreds of children were huffing and puffing and having fun at Three Little Pigs ballet workshops this weekend.
The workshops are based on The Three Little Pigs ballet devised by the NBT to get more boys and girls interested in dance.
Amy Addison, Northern Dance Centre's principal, said: “The children’s imaginations were captured.
"They were dancing beautifully without knowing they were working hard – they were so caught up in the story.
“It's very clever of the Northern Ballet Theatre to come up with this idea.
“The response we got to the workshops and people wanting to get involved was huge. We had hundreds of children all day.”
