For the last couple of weeks I’ve been traveling up to Durham on a Wednesday to work with The Flex Dance Company. Run by TIN Arts, The Flex is a company of 9 artists with learning disabilities who come together to create, devise and perform new contemporary dance work. TIN Arts is quite an inspirational organisation who deliver arts programmes for people of all ages and abilities over the North east so for me it’s a brilliant opportunity to work other experienced artists who are experts in this field. I was immediately made to feel very welcome and quickly got to know everyone.
Northern Ballet's blog
Quarry Hill exploded into colour last night with a stunning display of fireworks, courtesy of Wates Construction.
The construction company hosted a celebratory cocktail party at the new home of Northern Ballet and Phoenix Dance Theatre, their most recently completed development. Around 200 colleagues and friends from the world of building and architecture came to hear about the building project, watch performances by students of both the Northern Ballet Academy and Phoenix's Youth Academy and take guided tours of the unique new building.
Friends dropped by our new home this weekend to see how their support and help has paid off.
Had a wonderful time at the Friends event on Sat. Thank you so much - the bedroom pas de deux from R&J the highlight!

A magical family adventure
The irresistible story of the wooden boy who longs to be real is brought bursting to life in this fantastical adventure. Even when guided by the Blue Fairy and the chirruping Cricket, Pinocchio can’t help tumbling nose first into trouble. Small kid or big kid, it’s a musical treat for all the family.
December dates: Fri 17, Wed 29 – 7.00pm; Thu 23, Thu 30 – 2.00pm; Fri 31 – 11.00am
