It's been a long time since my last Tales from Touring blog and in fact it's been about four months since the last time I was out and about with the Company in Southampton! Since then we've had a fantastic run of performances of the Mixed Programme at our Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre, followed by a well-earned summer break for our dancers, six weeks of rehearsals and a stunning revival of Dracula at the West Yorkshire Playhouse.
We've partnered with Glamour magazine to offer you the chance to win a fabulous five star Cinderella weekend in Manchester.
We've teamed up with Cheshire Life to give you the chance to win the ultimate ballet experience. The prize includes two premium tickets to the performance of Cinderella at Manchester Palace Theatre at 7.30pm on Saturday 22 November 2014, with a pre-theatre dinner and overnight stay for two at The Palace Hotel.

We start planning the wardrobe for a revival as soon as possible, or as soon as we get the casting for a production. We got the Dracula costumes back from storage before the summer break at the end of June.
It's back to work this week for our dancers who we welcome back from a four-week summer holiday.
While we've been in the office enjoying the sunshine in Leeds over the last few weeks our dancers have been racking up some air miles during their well-deserved summer holiday. So where do dancers jet off to rest their legs and work on their tans? We asked some of them to let us in on their plans.
