Richard Alston Dance Company

Launched in 1994 to great acclaim, Richard Alston Dance Company is one of the UK’s leading choreographer-led companies, with a rich repertoire of deeply musical contemporary dance-works. Richard Alston is also Artistic Director of The Place, London’s leading centre for contemporary dance, where the company is based.

Richard Alston Dance Company focuses on Alston’s new choreography but combines this with the re-creation of seminal past works from Alston’s career. Music plays a vital part in the company’s identity and since its inception Alston has used the work of a diverse range of composers.
