Central celebrates the life of Christopher Gable

Calendar Posted 13 March 2019

Today we celebrate the life of Christopher Gable, Founder of Central who was born on this day in 1940. Christopher’s aim was to put theatricality at the heart of classical ballet performances, and this continues to influence the training that Central offers.

Kenneth MacMillan’s House of Birds is part of the Ballet Central 2019 repertoire. Christopher recreated the lead male role of this ballet, inspired by the macabre fairtyale 'Jorinda and Joringel' in 1963 (pictured here alongside Maryon Lane)..
