About Us

Laban Library offers the largest and most varied open access specialist research collection on dance and related subjects in the UK, covering many aspects of dance in a variety of formats and languages.

See the Library Collections and Resources for further information.

The Laban Archive focuses on the history and development of Rudolf Laban the man, Laban the institution and on the field of contemporary dance from its roots in European Dance Theatre Practice in the early twentieth century, via its American influences in the 1960s and 1970s to its current contemporary artists. Whilst tying in with Laban’s focus on contemporary dance, the contents reflect the wide influences and associations of the dance form and document both the creative processes and performances of Laban-influenced choreographers and dance practitioners.

See our Archive Collections for further information.
