Jan McNulty Posted May 4, 2018 Share Posted May 4, 2018 Two wonderful and wonderfully dramatic dancers are retiring from Northern Ballet at the end of June - Victoria Sibson and Dreda Blow. Victoria Sibson created the role of young Cathy in Wuthering Heights when she was still a student at Central School and has gone on to create and dance some incredibly powerful roles. I think my favourite recollection is of her performance as Puck in David Nixon's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" but she was also magical as Gertrude in Hamlet and more recently as Bertha Mason in Jane Eyre. I first noticed Dreda Blow when I was invited to attend a visually impaired workshop and Dreda was one of the dancers who participated. Since that day I watched out for her and have loved her in everything she has done from Cathy in Wuthering Heights to Julia in 1984 and most recently as Princess Dana in Little Mermaid. Both these dancers will be much missed and I would like to wish them both all the very best for the future. https://northernballet.com/jane-eyre/saying-farewell 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
