Ballet company seeks new sponsor for annual UK tour

LONDON - Student dance company Ballet Central is seeking sponsorship in the region of £100,000 for its annual UK tour.

Its five-year relationship with previous sponsor Scottish Power came to an end after the power supplier was taken over by Iberdrola in 2007.

The tour covers 25 venues across the UK from Ilford and Grantham to the Linbury at the Royal Opera House. Previous tours have attracted audiences of around 7,000.

Ballet Central is the Central School of Ballet's graduate touring company and features some of the UK's brightest stars.
