This one-day symposium will examine the contribution of refugee dancers from Nazi Europe and their contribution to British culture. It will include papers, presentations, and discussions of well-known figures such as Kurt Jooss and Sigurd Leeder, and also of those whose contributions have been forgotten or perhaps have never been highlighted from this perspective, such as Stella Mann and Helen Lewis.

Attendance is free, but please register here
