Welcome to The Society for Dance Research

From ballet to hip hop, from court dance to trance, from Kathak to cyberdance, contemporary to ballroom - the Society for Dance Research (SDR) offers stimulating events and publications covering a broad range of dance forms and dance related issues.

The society has been working since 1982 to promote and foster the quality and scope of dance scholarship and provide a forum for the diverse dance interests in the UK. Its aims are to advance education and research into all forms of dance, to encourage the preservation of important source material and to engage in discussion, meetings and other activities that support research into dance.
