Swans and Nutcrackers

'Everything about Northern Ballet's Swan Lake makes this a stunning production the perfect first event for this landmark theatre. The drama, the breathtaking beauty and the live orchestra all create a sense of occasion that will captivate hearts and minds - and show off Aylesbury's new jewel.'

No pressure then! This was the opening page of the brochure for the sparkling new Aylesbury Waterside Theatre. It was a fantastic new theatre to end a three week leg of Swan Lake and as you will have seen great to be part of such a star studded event.


The Flex

Published on

For the last couple of weeks I’ve been traveling up to Durham on a Wednesday to work with The Flex Dance Company. Run by TIN Arts, The Flex is a company of 9 artists with learning disabilities who come together to create, devise and perform new contemporary dance work. TIN Arts is quite an inspirational organisation who deliver arts programmes for people of all ages and abilities over the North east so for me it’s a brilliant opportunity to work other experienced artists who are experts in this field. I was immediately made to feel very welcome and quickly got to know everyone.
