In rehearsal with Jenna Lee for Central's Summer Performance

Calendar Posted 25 June 2019

This week Jenna Lee continues to rehearse her Rock 'n' Roll ballet with Central's second and third year students, ahead of Central's Summer Performances at the Bloomsbury Theatre on July 18 and 19.

Rock 'n' Roll takes inspiration from the upbeat music and glamourous style of the 1950’s dance halls. The piece is based on a trio Jenna created in 2015 for three English National Ballet dancers for a gala that was held at Sadler’s Wells. Now part of the repertoire of Dimensions Dance Theatre in Miami, Florida, Jenna used this as a stimulus to create a longer work to be performed by a full company of dancers. Based on classical ballet technique, the choreography includes elements of styles including; boogie-woogie, swing, jive, jitterbug and the Lindy hop.

Rock 'n' Roll is one of seven pieces of repertoire that will form Central's annual Summer Performance. This is a chance to see over 100 dancers from all three year groups perform a variety of classical and contemporary repertoire.
