Central School of Ballet’s renowned graduate performing company Ballet Central celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2015 – and is coming to Grantham next month.
The Guildhall Arts Centre will welcome the annual Ballet Central tour on June 25, and with it the chance to see some of the most highly skilled, new dance talent perform newly commissioned works and much-loved revivals by the dance industry’s top choreographers.
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.”
The 2015 repertoire includes a dynamic range of new pieces including an energetic neoclassical work by Scottish Ballet’s Artistic Director, Christopher Hampson entitled Four, to music from Flak by Graham Fitkin, and a world premiere of Morning & Moonlight, a contemporary piece suggesting elements of a seascape by international choreographer Christopher Bruce CBE, performed to excerpts from Benjamin Britten’s Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes.
Classical ballet fans will relish the Blue Ball Pas de Deux from Cinderella, choreographed by the late Company Founder Christopher Gable CBE and staged by Carole Gable, as well as La Fille Mal Gardée Pas de Deux and Pas de Quatre staged by Central tutors Resmi Malko and Patricia Linton.
