One of my best nights out in Leeds last year was Expressions at the Stanley and Audrey Burton Theatre in Leeds which I reviewed on 16 July 2015. This was  described as "a sharing which brings together inclusive dance groups from the North of England, giving talented dancers with disabilities the chance to showcase their skills to an audience on a professional stage." Gita obtained some photos which you can see at Expressions - some Pictures 17 July 2015.

There will be a similar show on 22 June but this time it will be divided into a matinee and evening performance:
Matinée (2pm) performance:
Mind the Gap
TIN Arts’ Tees Valley Inclusive Dance Company
Yorkshire Dance’s Leaps & Bounds group
Magpie Dance’s Highfliers group
Flamingo Chicks
DAZL’s Vine cheerdance group

Evening (7.30pm) performance:
Dance 21
Mesh Dance’s ME2 group
TIN Arts’ Tees Valley Inclusive Dance Company
Yorkshire Dance’s Raised and Mind the Step groups
Phoenix Dance Theatre’s Illuminate group
Northern Ballet’s In Motion and Ability groups

These artists achieve a very high standard indeed as you can see from Northern Ballet's video, Introducing Ability.

Admission is free but tickets have to be booked in advance either 0113 220 8008 or through the theatre's website.  The evening show is already fully booked but there are still 13 tickets for the matinee.
