Nicholson School of Dance
Where: Unit 11 Minerva Works, 158 Fazeley Street, Digbeth, B5 5RT
Just when you think Digbeth can’t get any more varied, enter Annette Nicholson (née Pain).
Annette is a former ballet soloist, who opened her school of dance in 2004. Frustrated by unsuitable facilities, she has decided to purpose-build dance studios at Minerva Works, complete with mirrors, barres and sprung flooring.
The result is a pretty spectacular transformation, which was officially opened by Birmingham Royal Ballet’s director David Bintley.
Annette specialises in ballet but also offers lessons in contemporary dance, pilates and yoga for adults and children. For more information, visit the Nicholson School of Dance website or Facebook page.
