Situation

Northern Ballet needs to retain a full Company of 40 dancers to deliver the creation of wonderful new ballets including Cinderella and The Great Gatsby, which for example reached an audience of 52,000 through 52 performances in 9 venues. Any reduction in dancer numbers would mean we are unable to use many major pieces in our repertoire and increase the risk of injury. In addition we would fulfil our goal of nurturing young dancers and allowing established artists to reach greater heights.

Solution

Building on the first years’ success of our Sponsor a Dancer campaign we are introducing a graduate programme of 10 dancers to complement our work with apprentices and the employment of talented dancers at the start of their careers. The programme will also allow experienced artists to excel through continued training at our world-class dance studios and through the creation of new work. Importantly we would also be able to continue to tour the whole of our repertoire across the UK
