Central School of Ballet Research & Scholarship Day

This staff development event packed with cutting-edge-thinking about dance training. It has been designed specifically as a resource for CSB to address our current issues and stimulate our practices. 

Keynote: Adesola Akinleye (Re:)Claiming Ballet: Adesola will unpack what it can mean to be involved in research through our practice. From the very first plié of the ballet class we can enquire about ourselves; how our body moves, what we notice, how we connect. Adesola will draw our attention to the ways in which we are already actively engaged with research through our practices. Followed by presentations from Suzie Crow Pursuing artistry in the ballet technique class; Claire Farmer Strength training for ballet; Zhibo Zhao Improvisation and ballet training
