Introduction

Images of Dance is London Studio Centre’s classical ballet performance group.
Images of Dance was formed in 1991 in order to provide classical ballet students with invaluable performing experience and to bring all aspects of classical ballet to new and younger audiences. Its policy is to provide an insight into the work of British choreographers, presenting diverse programmes of new, innovative works, as well as revivals of the classical and romantic narrative ballets.
Senior principal dancers from major companies, such as The Royal Ballet, English National Ballet and Rambert Dance Company rehearse the company and coach individual students. This enables them to study particular roles intensively, acquiring the performance skills that are essential to the professional dancer. Students collaborate with major choreographers in the creation of new ballets. This provides them with opportunities to understand the development of a professional production for the stage.
The tour culminates in a final London performance, which acts as a showcase attended by artistic directors, choreographers and other potential employers.
