George Piper Dances
Under the inspired leadership of Michael Nunn and William Trevitt, this small but exciting group of dancers has continued to go from strength to strength, and has won a devoted international following. It offers work of the highest quality and relies on performers, including the two founders and illustrious guest artists, who are breathtakingly multi-talented. Within the past year Nunn and Trevitt have achieved the enviable feat of inviting some of the country’s hottest choreographers, such as Russell Maliphant, to produce acclaimed works for them.

Phoenix Dance Theatre
Formed in 1981, Phoenix Dance Theatre has grown to be one of Britain's foremost repertory dance companies.  From its home in Leeds, the company tours nationally and internationally in the spring and autumn of each year. Since 2003 the company has been led by Artistic Director Darshan Singh Bhuller, performing his works, including the powerful full-length 2003 dance-drama Planted Seeds, as well as creations by internationally renowned choreographers, such as Rui Horta, Maresa Von Stockert and Henri Oguike.

Rambert Dance Company
Through its various incarnations, from classical ballet to cutting edge contemporary, Britain's oldest dance company has always focused on innovation. Some of the most historic works of the 20th century were premiered by Marie Rambert's enterprising troupe, including Frederick Ashton's A Tragedy of Fashion (1926) and Antony Tudor's Lilac Garden (1936). Since 1966,  when the company moved away from its ballet roots, contemporary choreographers from Europe and America have broadened its style immeasurably. Today, under Mark Baldwin's lively direction, the repertoire has continued to flourish through commissions from British-based choreographers such as Kim Brandstrup, Javier De Frutos and Rafael Bonachela.
