Alistair was born in Sydney, and trained at English National Ballet School in London where he achieved his Diploma of Dance from Trinity College London. Whilst at ENBS Alistair danced in English National Ballets productions of Swan Lake, Nutcracker and Sleeping Beauty.
On Graduation Alistair performed in Europe for 5 years, dancing with both Czech National Ballet and Slovakian National Ballet where he discovered a love of Jiri Kylian’s work.
Alistair had first hand experience of the power of Pilates, after coming back from two major injuries to dance onstage, this inspired
him to do his Advanced Pilates certification from Tensegrity and he is now helping aspiring dancers to achieve their classical ballet goals, through the power of body conditioning.
Alistair has been a member of the CB121 faculty from the very beginning and the work that he has put into the program has been hugely valuable. Not only has he shaped the fitness program through daily Pilates, cardio and strength training, but he has also developed the research side of the course helping students to write CV’s and plan for their futures. Alistair’s caring and calming influence contributes to the nurturing environment that CB121 provides.
