Are there any other archives that may be helpful?

There are many performing arts archives in London. The main archive that may be useful to you, as it contains collections relating to Rambert, is the V&A Museums’ Theatre and Performance Archive.

The National Resource Centre for Dance, Royal Ballet School Collections, Royal Academy of Dance and Trinity Laban Conservatoire for Music and Dance all have collections that relate to various aspects of Rambert’s history. Each archive has its own visiting policy and some may charge for enquiries.

The Association of Performing Arts Collections lists archives of dance and theatre.
