Cinderella Circus Skills Training

Cinderella, a ballet by David Nixon OBE, is full of beautiful classical ballet but also features our dancers performing fabulous circus skills.

Thank you to Greeptop for the circus training.

Northern Ballet's Cinderella is unlike any other.

The classic fairytale takes a magical twist when Cinders meets her prince at a circus spectacle.

To prepare for their roles our dancers learn some new circus skills. First up, plate spinning.

Juggling starts easy with squares of silk. Then the balls come out. Practice makes perfect!

Teamwork makes the dream work.

Next up, diabolo and the chance to really show off.

Got that? Try it on stilts.

A dancer's strength, balance and skill is pretty useful when learning new acrobatic skills.

So roll up! Roll up! Get your tickets to the greatest fairytale of them all.
