Wuthering Heights opens next week

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.

My name is Ebony Godridge and I am the new Dance Education Apprentice at Northern Ballet. I recently graduated with a BA (Hons) Dance degree from Leeds Beckett University and I’m hoping I can bring the skills I have learnt from my degree to the Learning team, to help plan workshops and projects. My main role as apprentice will be to support and assist our Dance Education Officers in the many workshops and projects that they deliver.
