Following our successful 2013 season, NYB is deep into planning 2014 with brand new works alongside some old favourites from the NYB repertoire. The Company has just completed final casting auditions for 2014 where the standard was extremely high!

This season the NYB will reach Beyond Ballet. 2014 will showcase a celebration of alumni choreographic talent. Drew McOnie will stage Little Red Riding Hood, a new jazz ballet with live jazz band. Its commissioned score is by Tom Deering. Jo Meredith will choreograph a stylish new piece sponsored by The Malcolm Arnold Trust with a live trio on stage. Padua Eaton, winner of the 2013 Genee Choreographic Award has been invited to create a short piece, and Arielle Smith and Alfred Taylor-Gaunt return with new show-stoppers! 

NYB will be returning to The Stag theatre in Sevenoaks for 5 performances on 21st, 22nd & 23rd August - box office will open shortly! London Gala performance to be announced.

We are pleased to announce that Samira Saidi, Principal of English National Ballet School, has become a Patron of NYB.
