Thursday 11th October 2018 – Ballet Central

Once again Liverymen and guests of the WCCS were treated to a private performance by second and third year students from Ballet Central. A mix of pieces from Swan Lake to more contemporary dance.

The event was attended by numerous Past Masters and their wives/partners.

   

This contemporary piece was choreographed by Natasha Chu, who graduated from Ballet Central in 2017. An exciting and dramatic piece where  the students used their body movements and breathing to depict the beating of many drums. 

 

The worthy bursey recipients Callum McGregor and Chelsea Wewege with School Director Heidi Hall, Choreography Director Christopher Marney, the Master and his lady.

Callum McGregor stepped in to the principal Swan Lake role with only 5 hours notice.

The third year students only had a few days to rehearse for this performance and surprised everyone at the quality of their polished performance.

The Master commented on how the students smiled throughout their performances, engaging fully with the audience. At the same time as training for careers in professional ballet, the students start their degree courses at the early age of 16 years old. Hat’s off to them all!
