Chris Marney choreographing for The Chelmsford Ballet Company Spring Season 2015



Christopher Marney, a dancer and choreographer, has achieved international recognition as a long-standing member of the iconic Matthew Bourne's New Adventures dance company. Marney is now much sought after creatively, and is staging his Carnival of the Animals for The Chelmsford Ballet Company dancers. He has become somewhat of a local star; originally a dancer with The Chelmsford Ballet Company in 1996, he is now a choreographer in his own right. 


Local dancers - who have gone onto further vocational dance training - will be leading The Chelmsford Ballet Company’s double bill, talent paving the way for the company’s dancers. Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance graduate Stephen Quildan – from Walthamstow – and Central School of Ballet student Jasmine Wallis – from Ongar – have joined The Chelmsford Ballet Company for its upcoming production in March at the Civic Theatre, Chelmsford. 


Quildan will be dancing the role of the hapless stage hand whilst Wallis – still a Senior Company dancer – features as the female lead, whilst currently training at the Central School of Ballet in London. 


As a fantastic introduction to ballet, the Company’s 2015 double bill is ideal for those new to the art form, with comical and an easy-to-understand narratives. Full of humour and family fun, audiences will experience the Company's varied work through The Carnival of the Animals and Artistic Director Annette Potter's Pineapple Poll. The programme runs from 18–21 March 2015 at the Civic Theatre in Chelmsford, Essex. Tickets are now on sale, for which contact the box office on 01245 606505 or visit www.chelmsford.gov.uk/theatres
