Rambert Archive

The Rambert Archive holds significant collections documenting the evolution of British dance. It tells the story of the development of Britain’s oldest dance company as we moved from classical ballet, through embracing modern American and other influences, to become a 21st century contemporary dance company.

With over 500 costumes, 700 posters, thousands of images and objects, dance notation, music and footage, the collections held in the Rambert Archive demonstrate the company’s pioneering work in dance throughout the 20th century to present day collaborations. Our collections can be used by researchers, schools, dancers and dance fans, our local community and the wider public for both education and inspiration.

Access to the Rambert Archive is free by appointment. You can arrange your visit in advance by emailing, telephoning or calling in to make an appointment with our archivists: archive[ATSIGN]rambert.org.uk / 0208 630 0609.
