The end of last week and all through this week our dancers are taking part in a different kind of training to normal - they're being taught the fine art of circus performing with Greentop Circus for some special scenes in Cinderella.
Our dancers have been taking snaps from inside the studios...
Northern Ballet Music Director, John Pryce-Jones, tells us about the process of selecting a composer for an original score for a new ballet. In 2013 we commissioned Philip Feeney to create a new score for David Nixon OBE's new version of Cinderella.
A beautiful summer’s day turns into tragedy. Devastated by the loss of her father, and excluded by her cruel stepmother and sisters, Cinderella finds solace on the frozen lake where she first sees her Prince Charming.
