Statement on the loss of Kevin Berry

Press release date 
Wed 13 Aug 2014

We are deeply saddened to hear of Kevin's passing and we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to his wife Pat and his family and friends at this incredibly difficult time. Kevin was a great supporter of Northern Ballet for many years and was thought of fondly by the whole Company. He was a truly valued advocate for dance in the North of England and will be sadly missed by all the staff at Northern Ballet.

Some of Kevin Berry's quotes on Northern Ballet for The Stage:

'Northern Ballet has established a formidable reputation for excellence and innovation over its four-decade history.'


'There is much to admire in this ballet and not simply the lithe and lovely Leebolt, who the ballet was created around in 2011' - 2014


'This production is handsomely staged. It has a believable degree of tension and it drops with fear' - 2009

A Christmas Carol

'Here is Northern Ballet's Christmas present to its loyal fans' - 2009

A Sleeping Beauty Tale

'One of the most inventive and absorbing new ballets from Northern Ballet Theatre' - 2007
