English National Ballet dancer and alumnus of Central returns to lead workshops

Calendar Posted 1 March 2019

Sarah Kundi, an alumnus of Central, and dancer with English National Ballet has been leading workshops with students on the Foundation degree programme at Central this term.

Sarah has been sharing her experience of working as a professional dancer with world-renowned choreographers through teaching the students excerpts of predominantly contemporary repertoire.

Sarah says “I try to focus on the different styles and techniques of the pieces, whilst allowing the students the opportunity to grasp and really explore the range of movement and detail required within them.”

Iryna Pyzniuk, Head of Studies at Central says “Working with visiting dancers and choreographers is part of the Contextual Studies programme, a core module on Central’s Foundation Degree in Professional Dance and Performance. The students have enjoyed the challenge of learning complex repertoire, exploring different stylistic features, working with precision and focus. These experiences serve as excellent preparation for Ballet Central in the third year.”

Sarah goes onto say "For me, going back to teach at Central School of Ballet is like going home. It holds a very special place in my heart, as it's where my journey started. It's always an honour to go back and share all that I have learned during my career to the younger generation. These experiences will most definitely help the students become more versatile, knowledgeable and well-rounded dancers, which inevitably will hopefully prepare them for their future careers."
