Plymouth hosts a range of high quality performances from local, regional, national and international dance companies, across its five venues: the Barbican Theatre - Plymouth, Theatre 1 Roland Levinsky Building, Theatre Royal, The Pavilions and the newest venue The House.
The city also has a reputation for being involved in the production of touring work by renowned choreographers including Matthew Bourne, Mark Baldwin, Wendy Houston, Adam Benjamin and Hofesh Shechter. International companies, such as Alvin Ailey, NDT and the Mark Morris Dance Company visit Plymouth as one of the stops on their limited UK tours. Repeat visits by companies including Birmingham Royal Ballet, Rambert and Tavaziva, enable us to become familiar with and regularly enjoy their work. Dance events such as Breakin’ Convention, Diversity, Strictly Come Dancing and the Plymouth MELA, give us the opportunity to experience a wide range of dance styles.
