This month, our dancers are taking a well-deserved holiday to rest and rejuvenate. Their holiday destinations are as far flung as Bali, Las Vegas and Thailand and a special mention has to go to Luisa Rocco who gets married in Italy this summer. Back in Leeds, we are looking forward to our summer schools before welcoming the dancers back to start rehearsals for Dracula.
We will open our autumn season with our adaptation of Bram Stoker's legendary Dracula, a ballet with a dramatic bite that will leave you thirsty for more. See it at the West Yorkshire Playhouse from 5 – 13 September.
We are delighted to announce that Dreda Blow, Lucia Solari and Kevin Poeung have been promoted and we are looking forward to welcoming 12 new dancers to the Company.
Two members of our Technical Team have been nominated for Technical Theatre Awards: Ali Allen for Scenic Artistry, and Sid Taylor for Stage Crew. Read more about the nominees and please cast your vote online to recognise our amazing Technical Team.
We're delighted to tell you that we have received a 23% increase in funding from Arts Council England and secured a place as a National Portfolio Organisation for 2015-18. It will allow us to extend our national tour, give more performances and reach more people.
We spoke to Jeremy to find out about his favourite sports and the secret to a winning fajita wrap in our 60 second interview.
Registration is now open for our new year of dance classes from September. Whether you're a budding ballerina or just want to dance for fun and fitness, we have a class for you.
Join us this autumn for your chance to go behind the scenes at Northern Ballet with talks, tours and demonstrations with our wardrobe and technical teams. Plus we have some wonderful family events too.
