Shoppers in Leeds got more than they bargained for last week when dancers Anna Blackwell and Guiliano Contadini joined fellow participants and supporters to launch NBT’s 40th Anniversary street party Ballet on Briggate.

Ballet on Briggate takes place this Saturday 5 September from 12noon – 2pm in central Leeds. Dancers from NBT will perform alongside students from the NBT Academy, as well as a group of young people and adults who have come together to create a special performance piece for the event. NBT will be joined by Phoenix Dance Theatre who are partners in our new building – and it will be the first public opportunity to see the new Phoenix dancers under the new Artistic Direction of Sharon Watson.
 
This is a rare opportunity to watch NBT for free and in the open air. Dancers Martha Leebolt and Christopher Hinton-Lewis will perform an excerpt from Dracula, Sebastian Loe and Ashley Dixon will perform the Chinese Dance from The Nutcracker and Michela Paolacci and Hironao Takahashi will perform an excerpt of A Christmas Carol.
 
Briggate is the main shopping centre in Leeds and the event will attract people from across the region and further afield. There will be prize giveaways and a special rendition of “Happy Birthday”.
 
Don’t miss out on this free event. Come down and bring all your friends and family – we’ll see you there.
