STUDENT ballerinas will be gracing the stage in Chelmsford with their nimble footwork and leaps.

On Wednesday April 23, the Central School of Ballet which is based in London are coming to the Civic Theatre as part of their UK tour.

During the performance at the Fairfield Road venue, students from the prestigious school will dance a number of different styles from classical ballet to routines put with jazz music.

Those performing on the night are all final year pupils at the school with the tour itself being included as a module on their degree course.

Sara Matthews, Central’s director, said: “We are the only vocational ballet school to offer an honours degree in professional dance and performance and pre-professional touring experience on such a scale.

“Ballet Central continues to be a springboard for hundreds of dancers into the top international dance companies.

“Dancers live to perform so touring is a much anticipated part of our three year curriculum and we hope that the Ballet Central tour will provide inspiration to young dancers who may be thinking about professional dance as a career.”

Graduates from Central have gone onto join premier ballet companies around the world including the English National Ballet, National Ballet of Estonia and the Singapore Dance Theatre.

Tickets for the show which starts at 7.45pm cost £14.50 for adults and £11.50 for concessions.
