My name is Rose Chadwick and I have recently started my post as Dance Education Officer as maternity cover for Sophie Alder.
I've been fortunate enough to have worked with Northern Ballet's Learning team as a freelance dance artist for a number of years and I’m really excited about working with the team and the Company full-time.

Whilst joining the company on tour in Newcastle this week, I met the very friendly and helpful Kirsten Dixon, Stage Door Keeper at the Theatre Royal. Kirsten was kind enough to talk to me about her role and what it is like working in the theatre.

Last Saturday the rain stayed away and the Learning team had a wonderful day down at the farm running games and activities to let people know about Three Little Pigs.

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.

Aye up, my name’s Pam and I live on the farm. I like rolling in mud, snuffling for food and eating all the scraps the farmer’s wife throws out.
I’ve been really bored of late and I’m ready to try something new, go on adventures and stretch my legs!

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.
