We want to get people dancing anywhere and everywhere this spring. Special Exhibitions Manager Kate Farrell talks about our upcoming competition for the galleries.
Our latest exhibition to be featured on the Promenade Gallery sees a newly curated selection of dance film, from national and international companies and artists; the exhibition aims to take dance off the stage and instead celebrates work created specifically for the camera.
Included within the exhibition will be a selection of ‘Dance Anywhere’ photographs – and this is where we need you – take a picture of yourself dancing in a location you wouldn’t expect, and you could be a part of the exhibition. So far we have seen people taking their pointe shoes out of the studio and into supermarkets, under railway arches and other public locations to put on their best performance for passers-by and spread their passion for dance.
We’ve received some fantastic entries so far that are adventurous and artistically very strong, they are all brilliant, but here are some that caught my eye:
The best photographs will form a display of their own within the exhibition which will feature critically acclaimed films from New York City Ballet, the Balletboyz, Siobhan Davies and more – find out more about the exhibition.
We’ve had some brilliant entries so far but are still looking for more – so please get dancing and get snapping!

Deadline for entries is Wed 19 February and the winners will be selected by myself and some of The Lowry Youth Dance Ambassadors.
