It's 450 years since the birth of William Shakespeare, and his works are far from being dead as a doornail (Henry VI Part II). In fact his words will live on forever and a day (As You Like It). In our repertoire we have three productions based on the plays of Shakespeare - Hamlet, A Midsummer Night's Dream and Romeo & Juliet.
Massimo Moricone was born in 1958. He commenced his training in Rome at the Centro Sperimentale di Danza Contemporanea, and then later at Mudra, the Maurice Bejart school in Brussels, and at the Centre Internationale de la Danse in Cannes. Massimo Moricone has also studied acting but decided later to pursue a career in dance. He went on to appear with many companies throughout Italy, dancing the ballets of leading choreographers, including Alvin Ailey, Amedeo Amodio, Felix Blaska, George Balanchine, Janine Charrat, Derek Deane, Heinz Spoerli and Vittorio Biagi.
The sound of a distant thunderstorm accompanies the first image of the star-crossed lovers caught up in events they cannot control.

'Mature Movers' is a creative movement workshop that is fully accessible. Following a warm up participants are taught a section of a ballet with accompaniment from a live musician. This workshop took place on the stage of Leeds Grand Theatre on March 4, 2010 where the dancers learned The Knight's Dance section of Northern Ballet's production of Romeo & Juliet.
