About Ballet Central
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.
Each year Ballet Central works with a mixture of highly acclaimed and emerging choreographers on newly commissioned works and much-loved revivals.
Recent Ballet Central choreographers include: Richard Alston, David Bintley, Christopher Bruce, Jonzi D, Matthew Hart, Christopher Hampson, Christopher Marney, David Nixon, Michael Pink, Mikaela Polley and Darshan Singh Bhuller.
Ballet Central has given hundreds of young dancers the opportunity to fully engage in all aspects of creating performance, including staging of existing repertoire, creation of new work, costume design and technical aspects of sound and lighting.
