From the early days of Northern Dance Theatre in Manchester up to today, here’s a whistle-stop tour through some of the best hidden gems our archive cupboard has to offer.

It's the season for babies - not only do we have two members of staff expecting very soon but their Royal Highnesses William and Catherine have just given birth to a healthy baby boy.

Over the summer we will be running extra classes for adults wanting to dance in the sunshine.
