TO THE BARRE

24 July 2021 Book tickets

Yorkshire Ballet Seminars have announced To The Barre, an intimate evening of conversation with Marguerite Porter MBE, Laura Connor, Wayne Sleep OBE, Sir David Bintley and Brandon Lawrence, chaired by Artistic Director Iain Mackay.  This illustrious group of ballet stars discuss their careers, inspirations and share tales of their time at Yorkshire Ballet Seminars exclusively on Saturday 24 July at 7:00pm (BST). 

Huddersfield-born Sir David Bintley comments, “I attended some of the first Yorkshire Ballet Seminars back in the 1970s. I was fortunate enough to be one of the first scholarship recipients, and I am delighted that Iain has asked me to go back and work with the students this year as a teacher. It was a huge inspiration for me to attend the Yorkshire Ballet Seminars. It added so much to my training and knowledge of what it would be like to become a professional ballet dancer. When I look back at all those who taught me, I feel lucky to have had that experience while growing up in Yorkshire. I am so glad that Yorkshire Ballet Seminars continues to thrive and inspire new generations of dancers, many of whom I have enjoyed working with at Birmingham Royal Ballet.”

Tickets can be purchased via the Stream Theatre website
