Ballet on Briggate, Leeds

Picture of dancers from Northern Ballet performing on Briggate Leeds.

On Friday Northern Ballet came to the people of Leeds by performing on a stage in Briggate in Leeds city centre.

In the above photo are dancers Ben Chapman and Isabella Gasparini performing from a piece called We Can Play. The young girl at the edge of the photo was lost in the world of ballet and that is what this event is all about. Hopefully some of the people in the audience will perhaps go and see these dancers perform at the wonderful new home here in Leeds that Northern Ballet share with Phoenix Dance Theatre.

Along with Northern Ballet there were also dancers from Phoenix Dance Theatre and the Northern Ballet Academy.

Nice to have a little bit of culture pop up unexpectedly in the middle of the city centre. I’ve never been to see a ballet, but I would have stopped to look at this

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
