Ballet Central returns to Grantham with a programme of ballet, contemporary and jazz dance.

The varied repertoire features a mixture of newly commissioned works and much-loved revivals, which showcase the talent of the company’s young and emerging dancers.

Ballet Central performed at the London 2012 Olympics and the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This family-friendly show is ideal for dance enthusiasts as well as those new to ballet.

William Glassman, artistic director of Ballet Central, said: “Each year we bring a programme featuring works by some of the UK’s most highly acclaimed established choreographers and talented young choreographers to local theatres. It’s a chance to see electrifying new works and time-honoured favourites performed regionally. This year’s repertoire includes a dynamic range of new pieces; a sharp-edged, neo-classical work by Northern Ballet’s Daniel de Andrade entitled Meraki to a new score by Ballet Central’s musical director Philip Feeney, a vibrant jazz number Toots Goes to Charleston by Leanne King, an enthralling narrative piece, Carousel Dances, by Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures Company principal artist Christopher Marney and a thrilling new neo-classical work by current MA choreography student Andrew McNicol.”

Ballet Central comes to the Guildhall on Thursday, May 29, at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £14/£12 concessions. Call in at the box office in St Peter’s Hill (Tel: 01476 406158) or go to
