Calendar Posted 7 September 2017

Ballet Central's 2017 tour visited 21 venues across the country this Spring, from Dumfries to Penzance and came to a close at Stratford Circus Arts Centre, London on 15 July 2017.

The tour under the new artistic direction of Christopher Marney, gave audiences the chance to see the company's young and dynamic dancers on the cusp of their professional careers. Newly commissioned works and celebrated masterpieces by the dance industry's top choreographers featured in this year's Ballet Central Tour, which was widely met with critical acclaim.

This is what critics said about the Ballet Central Tour:

"Watching Ballet Central...left me in little doubt that all of them would make highly accomplished additions to any company lucky enough to employ them." Jonathan Gray, Dancing Times July 2017

"As ever, a wonderful display of burgeoning dance talent, and an excellent sampler of what ballet can do." Michael Gray's Arts Blog, May 2017

"Overall, the performance is spectacular. Complex themes and issues are displayed through intricate dances; all the dancers pull together as individual components to create a masterpiece." Gursimran Hans, The National Student, June 2017

"...Commitment and understanding on display in abundance" (Matthew Bourne's Highland Fling) Dance Europe 2017
