Established in 1982, Central School of Ballet offers a two year Foundation Degree in Professional Dance and Performance and a further year that completes a BA (Hons) Degree, both validated by the University of Kent. Students follow a comprehensive programme of Ballet, Contemporary Dance and Choreography.

Final year students join the touring company Ballet Central providing first-hand experience of professional performance. Central’s graduates join leading international dance companies and musical theatre productions.

Heidi Hall, Director, and Christopher Marney, Artistic Director, now lead Central. Both are Central alumni; Chris was one of the first students to complete the school’s MA Choreography degree programme.
