Northern Ballet
A powerhouse of inventive dance Northern Ballet is a powerhouse of inventive dance. Bold and confident in our approach, we engage, involve and move our audiences. We reach a diverse range of people through passionate story-telling, a mastery of classical dance technique and an absolute commitment to our leading role as an international ambassador for world-class dance. A unique company Northern Ballet was set up in 1969 and has since grown to become one of the best-loved dance companies in the world. We take inspiration from an eclectic mix of classical dance, theatre, popular culture, literature and opera to develop new and original productions and to create new interpretations of popular classical ballets. We believe in the value of creating full-length ballets which appeal to as many people as possible from all walks of life, and we constantly seek out new audiences. We regularly tour throughout the UK and overseas and enjoy making everyone whose lives we touch feel they are part of the Northern Ballet family. Just at a time when we felt we were on the crest of a wave goverment cuts brought about a decrease in our funding. Having achieved so much on limited resources, it came as a huge disappointment. Without increased support we will have to significantly reduce the number of dancers in the Company. We now need your help to ensure we can keep our Company together. Fundraising just got personal. Join us, your donation could help us sponsor a dancer and help us to continue to produce work that inspires our audiences across the county.

It is finally time for me to follow the example of our talented dancers and try out a little fitness. I have joined Northern Ballet's team of 20 runners in the Jane Tomlinson's 10k run - or as I like to call it my personal marathon.

If you have ever enjoyed watching one of our fantastic ballets or are just fascinated to see if I can complete the 10k (6 miles in old money) then please support me by making a donation. All donations and any eligible Gift Aid will go to our Sponsor a Dancer campaign ensuring the Company's next new ballet Cinderella is a stunning success.  

I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.

Remember when you see your next performance you helped make it possible.

Yours in training,
