A unique collection of photographs celebrating international female leaders breaking new ground and shaping the world of dance in the UK.

From some of the UK’s most renowned dance companies to freelance dance artists across all genres of the art form, the significant influence of international artists is an integral part of the UK’s cultural fabric. Amongst them, two of the UK’s leading dance companies which were founded by female immigrants – The Royal Ballet companies by Ireland’s Ninette de Valois and Rambert by Poland’s Marie Rambert.

This photographic exhibition, displayed in the 12 Star Gallery at Europe House, celebrates the creativity and cultural diversity that is the hallmark of the European Union, and marks the rich cultural exchange between the UK, Europe and the rest of the world during a significant time of change in the UK’s relationship with its neighbours and highlights the importance of international cultural exchange to the health of the sector.

A special collection of works not to be missed.

The exhibition is organised by One Dance UK with the kind support of Jane Pritchard, John Travis and the European Commission Representation in the UK.
