Central School of Ballet is a world-leading professional dance training organisation and part of the renowned Conservatoire for Dance and Drama based in London. Established in 1982 the school values the artistic expression in dance, as well as the importance of technique.
Central offers a two-year Foundation Degree in Professional Dance and Performance, leading to a further year of training to complete a BA (Hons) degree, both accredited by the University of Kent. Students on the BA (Hons) degree course join the touring company Ballet Central in their final year providing first-hand experience of professional performance for ticket-buying audiences making Central’s graduates particularly employable.
Graduates join leading international dance companies and renowned musical theatre productions. Heidi Hall, Director and Christopher Marney, Artistic Director, lead Central. Both are Central alumni, with Chris being one of the first students to complete the school’s MA Choreography degree programme. Central’s studios have been established in Clerkenwell over many years; the organisation will realise its long-held goal of moving to new premises in the arts community South Bank in Southwark during the academic year 2019/2020.
