Central School of Ballet presents

Ballet Central

£14 FULL / £12 CONC


Ballet Central is pleased to be performing at the Waterside in 2019 with an exceptional range of repertoire. 

This is a chance to see young dance graduates on the cusp of their professional careers perform a varied programme of classical ballet and contemporary dance theatre.  An exciting evening of theatricality, technical excellence and drama choreographed by top dance industry influencers is promised, with stunning costumes enhanced by powerful music.

Highlights include Christopher Marney’s Carousel Dances, inspired by the 1945 musical Carousel by Rodgers and Hammerstein, a unique version of the Dying Swan Solo created by Calvin Richardson, and the Company is delighted to present an extract from Frederick Ashton’s acclaimed Valses Nobles et Sentimentales performed to Maurice Ravel’s suite of waltzes.


Artistic staff from Ballet Central will lead two creative workshops themed around Christopher Marney’s Carousel Dances, part of the repertoire the company will perform the same evening.

The workshops are open to all abilities and free to attend if a ticket has been purchased for the evening performance.
