Northern Ballet open rehearsal day (August 2024)


Recommended Posts

I go as a patron and maybe others do too. It's one of the benefits for patrons.  

 

You watch class in the morning which I always enjoy because I learn so much for my own dance practice from watching what the moves were meant to look like when they're done by people with actual dance ability.    

 

Then you watch them rehearse various of the works they're doing in the autumn and be coached in some of them.  

 

I thoroughly enjoy it because it's so interesting seeing how the company works and how they work together in the group scenes and how they think about the component parts.  Last year it was some of the Hammerklavier for the mixed programme and some of the wedding scene from Beauty and the Beast.

Thank you! I’ll see if I can get some time off work and head up to Leeds for a few days.

If you do come message me if you want to meet up or say hello.  I don't know the other patrons (apart from one person I met at a performance) as this is only my second year doing it.  It's nice to have someone to talk to.

Just to say that I have booked the time off work and booked for the open day. Just need to sort trains and hotel.

 

I'll message you closer to the day!
