A BALLET workshop and performance day based on Northern Ballet’s production of Madame Butterfly inspired 32 dance pupils from Stonyhurst College, Hurst Green.

After watching professional dancers rehearse at Leeds Grand Theatre the girls participated in their own ballet class in the studios of Northern Ballet in Leeds.

The day finished at the theatre where the company performed their production of Madame Butterfly.

Stonyhurst dance teacher, Miss Anna Southward, said: “This was a wonderful opportunity to experience a day in the life of a dancer, where they could link their own knowledge of dance and learn about the choreographic interpretation of Madame Butterfly.”
