Current Repertoire

Ballet Central has returned this Spring for its 2022 tour with a new cast of exceptional dancers performing a mixture of new pieces from distinguished choreographers, and a restaging of an existing contemporary work.

This year the tour presents three original pieces created on Central’s dancers from Central’s Artist-in-Residence, Mikaela Polley, renowned dance industry influencer, Ashley Page, and Ballet Black’s Mthuthuzeli November.  Alongside these original creations Cathy Marston’s piece Moving, Still has been restaged especially for the Ballet Central tour.

An original work from dance industry influencer, Ashley Page OBE, re-imagined from a piece created by the choreographer to the same music score in 2015, and the cast has been enlarged to accommodate more of the company. Some of the original choreography has been adapted to suit them but most of the material has been created directly on Ballet Central dancers. It is a direct, pure-dance response to the music from John Adams.
