The Riley Theatre at the Northern School for Contemporary Dance hosts a year-round programme of events and performances.
The theatre offers audiences the opportunity to see performances by professional visiting companies as well as NSCD student showcases and community platforms.
NSCD’s student performances have always packed the school’s Riley Theatre – delighting audiences and critics alike. The distinctive performance abilities of dance artists trained at the school are developed through an intensive and varied performance programme which includes the creation of new work on students by visiting professional choreographers and regular opportunities for students to create and perform their own work.
The school also has its own contemporary dance company called Verve which performs at the Riley Theatre and across the UK and Europe.
