David Nixon’s new dance piece for Ballet Central

In the UK David has created a new dance piece for students at the Ballet Central. Steps to Bach is a neoclassical work that the students will perform as part of their tour throughout the UK.
David, who is an Artistic Adviser at Ballet Central says of the piece:
“The music is Bach and I don’t often get the chance to create Bach. There’s no reason not to take music that has been used for a Balanchine work and is well known to give the dancers a feel of what neoclassical is, both the speed of it and the quality of the adage work.”
