A trio of events for Ballet Central!

Friday 17th November 2017 Isabel Campbell writes:

This week has seen Ballet Central dancers take part in a myriad of events!

On Wednesday evening many of the Ballet Central dancers performed in an exclusive event at Killik & Co, alongside several Central 2017 graduates. The repertoire for this event included excerpts from The Nutcracker, Shizaru choreographed by 3rd year student & Ballet Central dancer Natasha Chu as well as repertoire from Ballet Central 2017 tour, Indigo Children and the upcoming 2018 tour, FAR.

At another Mayfair location, at the Wallace Collection, two Ballet Central ladies, Klara Coxill and Heidi Richards were performing at an event with Jenna Lee Productions.

And on Thursday morning, Ballet Central supported the opening of Harriet Kelsall's Nutcracker themed window display in Cambridge, ahead of our run of Nuctracker performances at the ADC Theatre this December. Two Ballet Central dancers went along, Hannah Megaw and Freya Hiscock, as well as Central's Director Heidi Hall and co-founder Carole Gable.

These events and performances provide a taste of the experience that students get through training at Central!

Central supports Southwark for London Borough of Culture

Wednesday 8th November 2017 Isabel Campbell writes:

Central is proud to be supporting Southwark in its bid to be named the London Borough of Culture in 2019 or 2020!

Southwark is set to be Central's new home, when the school relocates to the South Bank in the academic year 2018/19.

Yesterday Southwark Council led a culture takeover day on social media to promote Southwark's bid. Central was involved on both Facebook and Twitter, sharing photos and videos of our staff and students showing their support of Southwark!
