Young dancers were en-pointe as they look set to tread the boards at a Leeds theatre.

Dancers, who train at the Academy of Northern Ballet, are performing The Nutcracker at Leeds Grand Theatre.

Leeds-based Northern Ballet are showcasing the tale of one child’s Christmas dreams coming true until January 2.

David Nixon OBE, said: “The Nutcracker is one of the world’s most popular classical ballets and holds a special place in the hearts of audiences young and old. We are delighted to once again revive this charming story and add that extra bit of sparkle to the festive season for audiences in Leeds.”
