Rambert is Britain's national company for contemporary dance.

The company thrives on its unique ability to share the widest range of repertoire: works from our rich heritage as the UK's oldest dance company; new works and re-stagings by choreographers from all over the world, including those who may be less well-known in the UK, and landmark dance from the 20th century. Bold, risk-taking, agile and beautiful, the dancers combine rigorous technique and artistry with an extraordinary ability to challenge and entertain. The company is also renowned for its use of live music and is the only UK based contemporary dance company always to tour with an orchestra.
