Leeds-based Northern Ballet’s premier dancer Kenneth Tindall is set to retire after 14 years with the company.

The award-winning star is moving on to a career as a freelance choreographer after gaining recognition for his work with Northern Ballet.

His farewell performance will be as Heathcliff in Claude-Michel Schönberg and David Nixon OBE’s Wuthering Heights at Milton Keynes Theatre in May.

Kenneth originally joined Northern Ballet in 2000 after training at the Central School of Ballet.

After a year each with The Israel Ballet and K Ballet, he re-joined Northern Ballet in 2003 working his way up to the rank of Premier Dancer under the directorship of David Nixon OBE.

He has performed many leading roles during his career, often dancing alongside his wife, Northern Ballet’s Leading Soloist Hannah Bateman.
