DDA gives public access, via one web platform, to multiple collections from the National Resource Centre for Dance (NRCD), as well as Siobhan Davies RePlay (SDR). These collections represent over 100 years of British dance performance, creation and research and include photographs, films, drawings and other ephemera.
The Jerome Robbins Dance Division of The New York Public Library is the largest and most comprehensive archive in the world devoted to the documentation of dance. Chronicling the art of dance in all its forms, the Division acts as much more than a library. We preserve the history of dance by gathering diverse written, visual, and aural resources, and work to ensure the art form's continuity through active documentation and educational programs.
