"Northern Ballet is excited to be a part of FEDORA's international Cultural Network. We look forward to sharing expertise and exploring partnership opportunities with fellow members."  Federico Bonelli, Artistic Director

Bold and innovative in its approach, Northern Ballet is one of the UK’s leading and widest touring ballet companies, dedicated to creating stories that connect. A champion for the cultural exports of the North, the Leeds-based Company is committed to bringing ballet to as many people and places as possible, under the leadership of Artistic Director Federico Bonelli. Northern Ballet’s Company of dancers performs a combination of its full-length ballets and specially created ballets for children at more than thirty venues annually. Audiences can also enjoy Northern Ballet’s work on screen through their digital dance platform. Visit digitaldance.org to discover more.  

We aim to reach as many different people and places as possible with our passionate storytelling, mastery of classical dance technique and live music. Take a look at our website for upcoming performances.

Northern Ballet is a charity, which aims to break down barriers to world class ballet. Alongside our artistic work, our Academy and Learning programmes enable people of all ages, means and abilities to take part in dance activities. 

We deliver extensive outreach with children and bespoke programmes for wheelchair users, adults with learning disabilities and people affected by Parkinson’s. None of this would be possible without the generous individuals, companies and trusts and foundations who are helping us along the way.

The greatest love story ever told is back – as Northern Ballet’s electrifying production returns in spring 2024. In the ultimate tale of forbidden love, two young people risk everything to be together. Adapted by Christopher Gable CBE and Massimo Moricone, Romeo & Juliet is one of Northern Ballet’s most beloved and critically acclaimed productions. 

Every leap, every turn, every heartbeat breathes new life into Shakespeare's masterpiece and invites you to rediscover the iconic love story like it’s the very first time. With glorious dancers, eye-catching sets and Prokofiev’s timeless music, this is ballet at its most dramatic, romantic and intense.
