Dancers Update 2024

The end of a season often means saying goodbye to some much-loved dancers and welcoming new faces to the ranks of the Company.

Joining us this year as Dancers are Nida Aydinoğlu, Noah Benzie-Drayton and Miguel Teixeira.

From within the Company Coryphées Harris Beattie and Alessandra Bramante are promoted to Junior Soloists. Apprentice Dancers Mayuko Iwanaga and Yu Wakizuka are promoted to Dancers.

At our London performances this spring we celebrated Abigail Prudames' illustrious Northern Ballet career as she retired from performing with the Company. Also moving on from Northern Ballet are Aaron Kok and Aurora Piccininni.

On the ballet staff Ashley Dixon, former dancer turned Assistant Rehearsal Director has taken on a new role at Scottish Ballet. We welcome Luke Ahmet to the role of Assistant Rehearsal Director at the end of the summer break.
