Ballet Central was created in 1984 as the touring company of Central School of Ballet to give Central’s graduating students the opportunity of professional performing experience to ticket-buying audiences. The company visits towns and cities across the UK every spring and summer performing in mid-sized theatres. The company also performs a range of choreography at various points throughout the academic year in Central’s Gable Theatre in London’s Southwark.
Ballet Central aims to make dance accessible by bringing the talent and skills of the next generation of professional dance graduates through performances staged across the country. The company’s diverse repertoire of much-loved classics and original dance pieces created by influential choreographers appeals to first-time audiences and dance enthusiasts alike.
