My story

[p]Thank you for supporting #theatrefor1pound![/p][p]The word theatre can mean different things to each of us. An annual family pantomime trip, concert, ballet, opera, play, musical, or even a school concert where you proudly see your child on stage for the very first time. Theatres allow performers to present so many different and exciting genres for audiences to experience.[/p][p]Live audiences use all their senses to watch dramatic gestures and dance moves, listen to singers, digest language from actors, or tune into live music of all sounds. A whole experience in one place as you are transported into a special environment of escape and imagination.[/p][p]Our daughter is a student training at Northern Ballet on their Centre for Advanced Training Programme and dreams of having a career as a ballet dancer. Music and performance are so important to so many of us regardless of age, ability or experience, and our aim is to help the arts not only survive, but continue to thrive.[/p][p]When at home in Leeds, Northern Ballet perform at Leeds Playhouse and Leeds Grand Theatre as well as in their own studio theatre. I wish to raise as much money as possible for these organisations. Help us keep the Arts in Yorkshire vibrant so we can continue going to the theatre for years to come to immerse ourselves in musicals, ballet, drama, concerts and pantomime.[/p][p]Donations made via this page will be collected by Northern Ballet, who will split it equally with Leeds Playhouse when the campaign closes. To donate to Leeds Grand Theatre please visit https://donate.leedsheritagetheatres.com[/p][p]Theatre is for everyone, so if everyone gave just £1 to keep the arts thriving that would be marvellous![/p][p][br][/p]
