Wates Construction workers swapped their tools for tutus last week when they took part in a sponsored ballet.

Wates builders take ballet lessons

The builders, who are working on the new Northern Ballet Theatre in Leeds, spent a day practising performance dance to raise money for the Prince's Trust, as part of Wates' annual community day.

The site team donned pink stockings and matching tutus, and were taught to plié, jete and pirouette by one of NBT’s dance education officers, Caroline Burn.

Mark Skipper, NBT chief executive said: “The construction team was definitely game for a laugh but I don’t think we have any rising ballet stars amongst them!”
