Northern Ballet has taken up residence in our new purpose-built home on Quarry Hill in central Leeds which we share with the Northern Ballet Academy and Phoenix Dance Theatre. It is a vibrant and exciting venue with lots on offer including dance classes for everyone in our stunning dance studios (including Europe's largest indoor rehearsal space). Our 230-seat studio theatre and other spaces throughout the building are available for hire for rehearsals, meetings and conferences. We also have a fully licenced cafe/bar and a catering team on hand to cater for your event.

A Cuban Tale - Javier Torres' Premiere with Northern Ballet

Published on

Premier dancer Javier Torres joined Northern Ballet this season straight from the  prestigious Ballet Nacional de Cuba. He left there after 10 years  and has embarked on a season with Northern Ballet which we are all truly excited about, and as you'll see in the following photo blog, I'm sure the crowds will flock from all over the UK to see him. Javier's premiere performance with us was in the very difficult role of Anthony in Swan Lake at the Bradford Alhambra.

A day off in Bangkok

Published on

This is my first photographic blog for Northern Ballet and I thought I'd start with a little insight into Bangkok. As we had very little time during our 4 days over there, I was only able to catch us on our day off, but we packed a lot in. I'll definitely be putting more dance photography on in my later blogs but for now here's 'A day off in Bangkok'.

A New Era for Northern Ballet Academy

Published on

It has been a very strange week for Northern Ballet Academy. With the Company only moving into the building last Monday we made the decision to move the Academy across a week later so that staff could fully get to grips with the building before more than 200 academy students came through the doors.

I have spent my week going back and forth from Quarry Hill in the daytime to West Park in the evenings and it really has made me realise quite how lucky the Academy is.
