Swan Lake & The Nutcracker: Two classics through a lens

Published on

Hello and welcome to my latest blog. This time I have a collection from two of our recent ballets, Swan Lake, which we performed in Bradford, Woking and Aylesbury; and The Nutcracker which we performed in Nottingham, Sheffield, Norwich, Manchester and Leeds. Though an injury to my knee prevented me from doing all of The Nutcracker performances, I was able to pick up my camera a little more and get some shots from the side of stage.

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.

I'll definitely be putting more dance photography on in my later blogs but for now here's 'A day off in Bangkok'.
