Hosting the exhibition 

We are inviting local libraries, art centres and cultural hubs to host this flexible collection of up to 30 images which is being offered to venues free of charge, with the cost of covering transport and installation only. In addition to the exhibition, there is the option to build in an interaction learning offer, for example a lecture demonstration, photography workshop or a dance project or event that is inspired by the themes around the exhibition.

For more information please contact Kate Laho, Learning Project Manager, English National Ballet. Tel: 020 7590 2920 or email  

"With these workshops, the end result was always going to be about experiencing the process and increasing the participants knowledge of the technical aspects of both photography and dance, but I am so pleased with the results from both the beginners and the intermediate groups that I think they make a wonderful exhibition." - Chris Nash, Curator
