Calendar Posted 12 March 2020

Central School of Ballet has announced that former Royal Ballet choreographer Charlotte Edmonds and Matthew Bourne/Ballet Central dancer Natasha Chu have both joined the organisation’s renowned ballet focused MA Choreography programme. The MA takes 18 months on average to complete, providing the opportunity for professional choreographers to hone their skills, engage in research and develop their practice at the highest level.

Charlotte trained at The Royal Ballet Lower School and Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance. She was The Inaugural Young Choreographer at The Royal Ballet (2015 - 2018) and now works as a freelance dance-maker across Europe.

Natasha is a Central School of Ballet graduate gaining a BA (Hons) in Professional Dance and Performance in 2018. For the Ballet Central tour, she performed works by Matthew Bourne, Wayne McGregor and Christopher Gable, and choreographed a piece for the Central’s End of Year Show and later for Ballet Central. After graduating, she joined Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures for the world premiere of Romeo & Juliet, which toured the UK in 2019. She worked with Payne Productions on the research and development for Bluebeard: A Chamber’s Scent and later joined Arielle Smith’s Project Dot.

Louise Ainley, Central’s Director Higher Education Programmes said: “Central’s MA in Choreography continues to provide opportunities to make new work in a context where the art form of dance can be explored, interrogated and extended. The outstanding successes of our MA alumni is assurance that our postgraduate programme continues to support the career development of talent choreographers who in turn are making a significant impact on the dance profession.”
