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.

Run With Northern Ballet

Gabrielle Wright

My page:

Northern Ballet's very own Faye Cardwell, Simon Kidd, Liam Verity, Laraine Penson and Jon Ingham are joining Friends, Patrons and parents of students at Northern Ballet Academy to take part in the first ever Run with Northern Ballet at this year's Jane Tomlinson 10k.

Our full team of 20 runners will take to the streets on July 14th in support of Sponsor a Dancer. It will be the campaign's first sponsored run.

Sponsor a Dancer, launched in 2011 in response to severe funding cuts, works to ensure that we can retain our full Company of 40 dancers and support the next generation of aspiring ballet dancers.

Your support would be greatly appreciated and will help us reach, and exceed, our £1,000 target. When you are watching the next Northern Ballet performance remember that, through your donation, you helped make it possible.

Thank you for your support.

Faye, Simon, Liam, Laraine and Jon
