Photo Coverage: Spring Dance at the London Coliseum

Askonas Holt, Raymond Gubbay and Sadler's Wells present Spring Dance at the London Coliseum from March 25th to April 26th 2009.

In a programme that demonstrates the variety and quality of the dance world, the Coliseum stage will play host to a mix of classical works presented on an epic scale, some of the world's greatest dancers testing themselves in unfamiliar choreographic territory and the diverse repertoire of one of the UK's best loved companies and the hugely popular world of ballroom dancing.

Dance has experienced an explosion in popularity over the last few years. It is the fastest growing art form. Over 10 million people regularly watch Strictly Come Dancing, 13 per cent of the population attend dance performances, and over 4.8 million people participate in community dance each year in England alone. Spring Dance at the London Coliseum is a showcase season which provides an unrivalled opportunity for these dance fans to watch world class companies and artists in a unique arena.

American Ballet Theatre brings full scale productions of Swan Lake and Le Corsaire; Russell Maliphant will work with a range of new collaborators including Adam Cooper, Agnes Oaks and Thomas Edur, and Ivan Putrov; Birmingham Royal Ballet brings two programmes - Pomp & Circumstances and Sylvia; and Strictly Come Dancing's Anton Du Beke and Erin Boag present Cheek to Cheek - their celebration of ballroom and Latin dance.
