Summer is here and it’s time to get fit, tone up and get dancing with Northern Ballet Academy’s Open Classes.
For the rest of this term Northern Ballet Academy are offering half price classes in contemporary and jazz to get the people of Leeds up and dancing and ready for the beach! That means classes are just £3.25 each.
Quarry Hill Festival is a day of free performances, workshops, classes and behind-the-scenes insights from some of Leeds’ leading cultural organisations all based on and around the Quarry Hill area of the city.
Northern Ballet and Phoenix Dance Theatre dancers are turning their hands to choreography for their first ever showcase of work at their home on Quarry Hill. The Choreographic Showcase will be performed on 17 and 18 June at 7.30pm in the Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre.
Through the night of the London premiere the stars told us what they thought of the production...
I thought it was absolutely fantastic. Absolutely stunning. I have played Cleopatra so I followed every single moment and wish that in my dreams I could have ever been as elegant as the Cleopatra tonight. It was absolutely marvellous. Loved it.
A Different Dynamic Limited in association with Steve Hughes for Northern Ballet present
Bereft. That’s what we are. The Northern Ballet foyer no longer bristles with the wary fascination of bystanders as Levantes Theatre mixed cupcakes, made paper-chains, flew paper aeroplanes, and scattered confetti into the early gloaming. The car park is no longer fronted by Laura Mugridge’s deep yellow camper van – part performance, part squatter. Tea is no longer served four times a day, nor can one have an exclusive audience with one’s roads-not-travelled six times a day. In short, Mezze’s over and I’m miffed.
