Central Leeds has claim to so many cultural venues and one of those venues is the Northern Ballet. The Northern Ballet is a dance centre that is home to the Northern Ballet Company but also it is a vibrant centre for performing arts and dance classes. Situated in Quarry Hill the Northern Ballet is a popular venue for many of the guests staying at Residence 6 luxury serviced apartments. There is always a varied range of performances – truly something for everyone.
To showcase all the upcoming events and performances really would be impossible – so much is happening at the Northern Ballet in 2011. We highlight some of the performances that we hope readers will want to see whilst enjoying a stay in a luxury apartment hotel in Leeds city centre.

This is a must for everyone – if you have seen Wayne Sleep perform previously you will know not to miss this performance that highlights his ballet and entertainment successes during the past 30 years.
