Margot Fonteyn Beyond Borders Great Women In Dance202

One Dance UK is holding an exclusive photography exhibition Beyond Borders – Great Women in Dance in the 12 Star Gallery at Europe House, Westminster.

From some of the UK’s most renowned dance companies to freelance dance artists across all genres of the art form, international artists have significantly influenced the UK’s cultural fabric. Indeed, one of the UK’s national dance companies Rambert was founded by Poland’s Marie Rambert.

Beyond Borders – Great Women in Dance celebrates the creativity and cultural diversity that is the hallmark of the European Union, marks the rich cultural exchange between the UK, Europe and the rest of the world during a significant time of change and highlights the importance of international cultural exchange to the health of the dance sector.

The exhibition is organised by One Dance UK with the support of Jane Pritchard, John Travis and the European Commission Representation in the UK. The photography is drawn from the collection of John Travis and the BBO Dance collection.

Beyond Borders – Great Women in Dance runs until February 15 and the gallery is open from 10am-6pm, Monday to Friday and is located at 32 Smith Square, London SW1P 3EU.
