In August, 2010, we held a preview event at City Inn, Leeds, where we showed excerpts from The Nutcracker. Dancers Julie Charlet, Ben Mitchell and Thomas Aragones gave the rapt audience a flavour of the ballet.
Benjamin was born in Germany and trained at the Royal Ballet School and Elmhurst School for Dance. He joined Northern Ballet in 2007 and in 2013 he moved on to the Deborah Colker Dance Company in Brazil.
Benjamin returned to perform with Northern Ballet as a Guest Artist in spring 2014.
