This week is our final full week in the studios before the Company heads to London to perform the Mixed Programme at the Linbury Studio Theatre. The first two performances are virtually sold out but there's still tickets available for the matinee and evening performances on Saturday 10 May so book now to avoid disappointment.
Last week at Northern Ballet 48 children took part in our open Easter Course! The children, all aged between 6 and 13 had a great time looking at extracts from Northern Ballet’s current productions; Three Little Pigs and Cinderella.
