National Resource Centre for Dance

The National Resource Centre for Dance was founded in 1982 with the aim of providing support services to dance education and research. It does this through two main areas of work: courses and publications for dance teaching and study, and an archive collection which is open to researchers and is actively utilised in research projects.
