On Monday two of our dancers, Leading Soloist Hannah Bateman and Premier Dancer Kenneth Tindall, are as many questions as they can about what it to be a professional dancer, life on tour and (almost) anything you can think of… If you post questions here I’ll post back their answers :)
Please share so as many people as possible get to ask a question!

Filmed at Leeds Grand Theatre in March 2012, this footage from David Nixon’s acclaimed production of Madame Butterfly performed by Northern Ballet dancers to live music from the Northern Ballet Sinfonia. Featuring Keiko Amemori as Butterfly, Kenneth Tindall as Pinkerton and Martha Leebolt as Kate alongside Northern Ballet dancers bringing this tragic tale to life.
