On a wet Tuesday morning last week I started my internship with Northern Ballet’s Communications team. After a very warm welcome the team sent me to Manchester to see the latest production of Madame Butterfly.

Good morning duck fans. With all the cuddles I’ve been getting over the last few weeks at the Breeze events I’ve had the stuffing knocked out of me, quite literally, and I’ve now got a little cut on my neck!

Joseph Poulton and Dale Rhodes were 2 of the original students we took onto our Professional training programme (CAT) in its pilot year in 2004. They both graduated from the Academy 2008.
This week they have been back in to visit us all and I managed to have a quick chat with them about their training and their time at Northern Ballet Academy.

Hello! I am the latest addition to the Northern Ballet team and I've spent the last few weeks visiting parks around Leeds with Breeze on Tour, telling people all about our new ballet for children, Ugly Duckling.
