As a recently graduated student with a highly useful but extremely non-vocational degree in History I have found myself in that limbo stage of attempting to sample every avenue the world of work has to offer. It is to this end that I find myself enjoying an interesting and enlightening week of work experience with the fundraising team at Northern Ballet.
Similar to people, ballet companies have their own personality. This year as I did a tour of auditions, I discovered Northern Ballet was someone I wanted to get to know. I was drawn to their honest approach; the way they took enough time to really learn about my abilities, and also introduce me the breadth of the Company.
On Wednesday 23 October 2013, Dance UK and partners Yorkshire Dance, Phoenix Dance Theatre, Northern Ballet, Northern School of Contemporary Dance and Leeds Metropolitan University Dance Department are hosting the annual professional development and networking day for dance students and recent graduates. This is taking place for the second time in Leeds.
