Five festive Nutcracker shows for Ballet Central!

Last week, Ballet Central performed five festive sold-out performances of The Nutcracker in Cambridge!

The production was directed and choreographed by Ballet Central's Artistic Director Christopher Marney and was a dazzling 45-minute version of the time-honoured Nutcracker, introducing children of all ages to a new take on the iconic Tchaikovsky score.

The performances received rave reviews with audience members tweeting it was "charming", "outstanding" and "magical".

Following each performance, children were offered the opportunity to have their photograph taken with some of the dancers in costume and were also gifted free Nutcracker activity packs, created by Central's Widening Participation and Access team.

The performances were a wonderful way to end what has been a very busy and exciting first term at Central. We wish all our supporters, friends, students and staff a very merry Christmas, and look forward to a wonderful 2018!

Thank you for supporting Ballet Central with the Big Give!

Central would like to thank all who supported our seasonal fundraising campaign, The Big Give Christmas Challenge.

Over the 7 day period, we raised an incredible £21,925 towards Ballet Central. The Ballet Central team are very grateful for all donations which were doubled during the campaign period.

These funds will make a real difference to the Ballet Central tour, enabling the company to buy new light-weight ballet barres, a new portable dance-floor and special effects equipment!

Throughout the campaign Central did a number of activities; we garnered support in our local neighbourhood of Clerkenwell, performed at a special Christmas event in Devonshire Square, and captured the support of alumni and well-known supporters including Anneka Rice, An American in Paris and Scottish Ballet.

You can see all our social media activity we did throughout the campaign by heading to our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
