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.

My main role as apprentice will be to support and assist our Dance Education Officers in the many workshops and projects that they deliver.
