Current Repertoire

This year’s repertoire promises to deliver exciting theatricality, technical excellence and drama choreographed by international dance industry influencers, with stunning costumes enhanced by powerful music.

The first production of this academic year is a unique version of the iconic Christmas classic Nutcracker told through the 12 Days of Christmas. Ballet Central has been performing Christopher Marney’s adaptation of the famous ballet to much acclaim, but this year due to COVID restrictions, Chris has created a stunning film of the ballet with the Ballet Central dancers with all appropriate elite dancer protocols.
