Ballet Central has been Central School of Ballet's touring company for over 30 years. The tour is a regular fixture on the UK's touring calendar and the performances are much anticipated throughout the UK.
The company is comprised of the school's final year students as part of their BA (Hons) Degree course. Central School of Ballet is the only classical vocational school to offer an Honours Degree and pre-professional touring experience on such a scale. It has been a springboard for hundreds of dancers into the dance profession.
Ballet Central’s diverse range of dance and theatre returns under the guidance of its new artistic director Christopher Marney. See the company’s young and dynamic dancers on the cusp of their professional careers showcasing newly commissioned works and celebrated masterpieces.
This year’s repertoire features Indigo Children by Royal Ballet artist in residence Liam Scarlett, and a scene from Romeo & Juliet by former English National Ballet’s Jenna Lee. It also includes a specially created work by Christopher Bruce, as well as excerpts from Petipa’s La Bayadere and The Nutcracker. The tour will also feature a scene from Dracula, choreographed by Michael Pink from the original production directed by Christopher Gable in 1996.
This family-friendly show is ideal for dance enthusiasts as well as those new to ballet. Don’t miss this opportunity to see these highly talented dancers at the peak of their training as they launch their professional careers.
…dancers at their very best
