This is a 'Tales from Touring' blog with a difference - 'Tales from Le Tour' to be precise - as I went with Isadora Valero Meza and Sebastian Loe on a journey along this weekend's Tour de France route for a photo shoot with the Yorkshire Post, Harvey Nichols and Vidal Sassoon showcasing the best of Yorkshire alongside some stunning French fashion.
In a nutshell describe your job and how you got into it
I'm a Coryphée at Northern Ballet, my job is exciting, challenging and fulfilling. I got into it by spontaneously taking part in a class where my sister had ballet lessons after school.
Where can you be found when you’re not at Northern Ballet?
Probably at the cinema as I'm a bit of a movie buff.
Sebastian was born in London and trained at the Royal Ballet School. He joined Northern Ballet in 2004.

In honour of Shrove Tuesday 2010 (Pancake Day), we put our dancers pancake flipping skills to the test in the studio earlier today. Graham Kotowich, Tobias Batley, Sebastian Loe and Ashley Dixon limbered up for a pancake race, before displaying their individual flipping skills! Were still not sure who the clear winner was either!
