Cleopatra may have finished it's tour but on stage this weekend Martha Leebolt and Tobias Batley will be performing the 'Cup Pas de Deux' as part of a Gala performance for Peter Breuer at Salzberg Ballet.

This is the last week of Academy classes before the Easter break, classes will begin again on Tuesday 22 April. It's not that professional students will have much of a breather though, the Academy's Easter Course begins next week and runs till Saturday 12 April.

Our open Easter course for children aged 6 to 13 of any ability will be running from Monday 14 to Thursday 17 April.

Our education and accessibility programmes are busy at Hull this week. With the David Ross Education Trust we have five schools coming to the Thursday matinée performance of Cinderella and with VocalEyes we have 29 VIPs (Visually Impaired People) coming to the Audio Described (AD) performance on Saturday, a fantastic success and one of the most attended AD performances of a major production anywhere in the country this week.
