We're popping up everywhere
On 26 August Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles broadcast his Breakfast Show live from BBC Yorkshire. As he was just next door we sent Chris and the team breakfast and a cheeky slice of cake from our Café Bar and from their discussion on air it definitely went down a treat!
Northern Ballet Soloist Ashley Dixon recently joined the judging panel on CBBC's new dance show presented by Strictly Come Dancing judge Alesha Dixon. Three young street dance crews were given the challenge of including ballet moves in their choreography. To see if they impressed Ashley watch CBBC's Alesha's Street Dance Stars from 1 September on iPlayer.
Artist Dudley Edwards has launched a stunning new exhibition of photographic prints at the 4th Floor Café in Harvey Nichols in Leeds, based on Northern Ballet dancers. The prints are available to buy, with a percentage of profits going to Friends of Alfie Martin - a charity working to improve facilities for newborn babies requiring urgent neonatal equipment and transportation facilities.
