Change to Ballet Central 2020 Tour Repertoire

Calendar Posted 31 January 2020

A piece of repertoire created by the Royal Ballet’s choreographer Liam Scarlett due for inclusion in this year’s Ballet Central tour will no longer be presented. Central School of Ballet has decided not to run the piece following a report in yesterday’s Times which featured allegations of misconduct at the Royal Ballet. Central was unaware of the story or the allegations until the news appeared yesterday.

The piece Serpent was commissioned by Central through the company Ballet Boyz and not by Liam Scarlett directly. In preparation for this year’s tour Liam Scarlett has neither visited the school, personally rehearsed the piece with Ballet Central, nor had any contact with Central School of Ballet students.

The tour opens in London on 26th March with revised repertoire, soon to be announced.
