A group of young and dynamic dancers will showcase their talent with a diverse performance of newly commissioned works and much-loved revivals at the Guildhall Arts Centre.

Central School of Ballet’s renowned graduate performing company, Ballet Central will be coming to the Guildhall in Grantham on Wednesday, next week as part of its UK tour.

The Ballet Central 2016 tour features a varied programme of ballet, neoclassical, contemporary and narrative dance in a celebration of creative dance and performance.

The tour will see a re-working of War Letters by Christopher Marney (Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures), Superstruct by Sara Matthews (Director, Central School of Ballet), Ascent by Mikaela Polley (Rambert), and Repetition of Change by Sharon Watson (Artistic Director, Phoenix Dance Theatre).

The tour will feature the duet Insinuare by Leanne King, which was performed in the Category Finals of BBC Young Dancer 2015, and will also see the premiere of La Belle Époque by Richard Bermange (Ballet Ireland) who is currently completing Central’s MA Choreography.

Classical ballet fans will relish Celebration by company founder Christopher Gable CBE and Pas de Trois from Paquita staged by Carole Gable. They will also enjoy Élan Vital choreographed by Linda Moran.

Sara Matthews, director of Central School 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 exciting new works and time-honoured favourites performed regionally.”

The performance on Wednesday, next week, will take place from 7.30pm to 10pm. Tickets are priced at £14 (£12 concessions).
