Northern Ballet will host community and professional inclusive dance groups from Yorkshire and beyond at Expressions 2017.

Alongside community groups, audiences will have the rare opportunity to see professional work by two inclusive dance companies from the UK and Europe; TIN Arts, an inclusive dance organisation from Durham, and Ensemble BewegGrund Trier, a professional DanceAbility Company from Germany.
