Beloved Patron, Dame Gillian Lynne has passed away

Calendar Posted 2 July 2018

It is with great sadness to hear that our beloved Patron Dame Gillian Lynne has passed away. Gillie worked closely with our Founder Director, Christopher Gable, and together they inspired generations of young theatrical talent from Central School of Ballet.

Current Director Heidi Hall also worked closely with Gillie on many productions of Phantom of the Opera, one of her most celebrated pieces as a choreographer.

“I will never forget her dynamic energy and inspirational imagery in the rehearsal room. She taught me to demand excellence from myself as a performer and to always be a committed actor. Her legacy will continue to live on in the many young Central dancers who continue to appear in her shows all over the world."
