Ballet Central


With a chance to see the rising stars in dance theatre, Ballet Central showcases the best in international dance.

Under the artistic direction of Christopher Marney, these young dancers on the cusp of their professional careers perform a mixed bill featuring works by world-renowned choreographers.
Matthew Bourne of New Adventures honours us with the Fairies Prologue from his gothic-reworking of Sleeping Beauty and we are thrilled to announce that, for the first time, Ballet Central will present an excerpt from Far by multi award-winning choreographer and director Wayne McGregor.

After the success of last year's Romeo & Juliet, choreographer Jenna Lee returns to Ballet Central with her brand new creation Black Swan, a dark twist on the iconic classic.
To celebrate the life and work of Kenneth MacMillan we introduce an excerpt from his rarely-seen 1983 ballet Valley of Shadows inspired by Georgio Bassani's haunting novel The Garden of the Finzi-Continis.

To close this year's performance Christopher Marney will revive scenes from Christopher Gable's Cinderella on the 25th anniversary of its creation. Set to an acclaimed score by Ballet Central's resident composer Philip Feeney, this is a timeless version of a much-loved fairy tale.
