Ugly Duckling

I was lucky enough to attend the Action for Children’s Arts (ACA) Awards 2014 yesterday with Northern Ballet’s Director of Learning Selina McGonagle, to accept the Outstanding Contribution Award to Children’s Arts on behalf of Northern Ballet. The ceremony was held in the fantastic BBC Radio Theatre at Broadcasting House in London and we felt really honoured to be part of what was a really special afternoon.
After the long Easter weekend we are back in the studio getting ready for the Mixed Programme at Linbury Studio Theatre at Royal Opera House. Kenneth Tindall's Luminous Juncture is set to get it's London premiere, Hans van Manen's Concertante makes a welcome return to the repertoire after a wonderful response last year and the dance legend Lar Lubovitch is in the studios rehearsing Concerto Six Twenty-Two.
The television adaptation of Northern Ballet’s Ugly Duckling has been nominated for a Royal Television Society programme award in the Children’s Fiction category. 
Quack! Hello everyone, sorry I haven’t been in touch for a while but I have been travelling the country alongside my good friend Ugly who has been performing Ugly Duckling in the North & South!

Hello everybody, I'm back in Leeds after a very busy couple of weeks. I've been all over the North of England visiting schools, dance academies and theatres. I've never had so many snuggles!
Hello everybody! I have been continuing my travels over the last week to tell children across the North of England all about Ugly Duckling and to get them all dancing and having fun. I went to Berwick-upon-Tweed and on the way there I saw five rainbows which were very beautiful.
