Returning on Wednesday 12 & Thursday 13 July 2023, Expressions showcases the exciting new work of inclusive dance groups from across Yorkshire and beyond.
Taking place at the Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre at Northern Ballet’s headquarters, Expressions is the only event of its kind in Leeds, celebrating the work of talented disabled dancers and giving them the opportunity to perform on a professional stage.
Expressions has a relaxed structure and all performances are designed to be accessible for performers and audiences alike.
