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]

This is such an incredible initiative! The arts make life vibrant and bring joy to so many people. It has been a crazy tough couple of years so let's help rebuild so that people can continue to enjoy the beauty of the arts! All the best!

What a wonderful initiative! The arts filled so much of my childhood when sport was not accessible for me and brought me endless hours of happiness and memories. I'm so happy they are back open now but we must help them back on their feet. Good luck!

An inspiring story and initiative. Well done Victoria. The arts and sport are similar in many ways, and the struggles are often relatable. I wish your daughter Izzy and all her colleagues all the luck for the future; these times will only make it sweeter
