ICTheatre Manchester are now in proud Partnership with the Northern Ballet School (NBS)

The Dancehouse, one of the most iconic buildings in Manchester, is home to our ICTheatre Training Professionals in the north and has been the location for the prestigious Northern Ballet School (NBS) for many years.

Established in 1977 by Patricia McDonald, NBS, is an internationally recognised school training dancers for professional careers in classical ballet and commercial theatre. The history and experience of NBS combined with the contemporary outlook of ICTheatre create the perfect mix, and we couldn’t be happier to be working side by side.

ICTheatre, in partnership with Northern Ballet School, offers a three-year full-time professional course leading to the Trinity College London Diploma in Professional Dance, in addition to the NBS Diploma in Professional Dance. It is accredited by Trinity College London and the Council for Dance, Drama and Musical Theatre (CDMT). They offer quality assurance and membership services to institutions delivering training, education and assessment in the performing arts.

Following graduation, students can convert their diploma to a degree. The course will prepare you for a career in an industry that demands an ever-widening range of dance performance and related skills. Students study a range of dance styles and genres throughout the three years of the course, with classical ballet always at the foundation.
