dancers from Leeds-based Northern Ballet will pirouette onto the big screen after teaming up with children’s favourites CBeebies.

The CBeebies team filmed dancers at West Yorkshire Playhouse for their television adaptation of The Elves and the Shoemaker which is especially for children.

The show, which is touring the country this year, is a retelling of the famous Brothers Grimm story about a poor and kind-hearted shoemaker who received some help from a mysterious maker of magical shoes.

Nick Ahads play Partition is the first ever collaboration between BBC Radio Leeds and West Yorkshire Playhouse.
