Project #1 – Perpetuum Mobile – Rhapsody in Blue – Glass Canon
See Northern Ballet up close and personal this February with Perpetual Motion, the Company’s first programme of short dance pieces in their new home.
Scottish Ballet's new Artistic Director Christopher Hampson shows off the dancers' strength with spins, jumps and beats in Perpetuum Mobile taking Bach’s Violin Concerto in E Major as its inspiration.
Rhapsody in Blue from Northern Ballet's I Got Rhythm, sees five couples dance to Gershwin's famous music. See the full-length ballet by Artistic Director David Nixon at Leeds Grand Theatre in May, preview it here first.
Glass Canon is a high-energy, mischievous and dynamic dance set to, and inspired by, the music of Moishe’s Bagel choreographed by Daniel de Andrade.
Project#1 is Premier Dancer Kenneth Tindall's choreographic debut. Set to Dinah Washington and Max Richter’s stirring This bitter earth – On the nature of daylight it is a moving and accomplished piece from a promising young artist.

"Last night Northern Ballet staged their first mixed programme in the Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre, and what a treat!"
"The studio theatre venue provides the opportunity for a far more intimate performance than at the Grand, and left me utterly captivated."
"Two pianos, a clarinet, and five couples fuse ballet and jazz most elegantly: so romantic for the St Valentine's season"
This video features interviews with dancers and rehearsal footage from Kenneth Tindall's choreographic debut, Project #1.
