On Friday 21 October, Northern Ballet's Ability dancers performed along the golden carpet as part of the opening celebrations of the new Victoria Gate Shopping Centre in Leeds. They did brilliantly, especially as the performance was their first chance to run the piece in a long, narrow space.
The 4 weeks spent creating and rehearsing the piece had taken place in a small studio and we had to spill out into the corridor to get an idea of how far we would need to travel on the golden carpet.

It’s just one week until Wuthering Heights opens at West Yorkshire Playhouse to kick off our autumn tour. This is a very special piece from our repertoire, being the first original full-length ballet created for the Company by our Artistic Director David Nixon OBE. This will be the first time in over 10 years that the ballet has been performed in Leeds, just miles from Emily Brontë’s original setting.
