See every sequin. Hear every note. Experience the magic of Big Screen Dance.

This is not a cinema – this is a royal concert hall. It’s the hushed whispers as the audience takes their seats. It’s the music that swells around you, the thunderous applause. It’s a merry waltz, a soaring leap, the perfect pirouette. It’s every detail captured live as it happens.  

Fall in love with classic storybook ballets like Swan Lake and the Nutcracker. Marvel in the mastery of modern choreography. Big Screen Dance is your ticket to the hottest dance performances in the world right now.


We show two types of Big Screen Dance: live showings (which are captured and broadcast as they happen) and encore showings (live broadcasts that have been taped). There are no adverts or trailers played before live performances, so arrive right on time so you don’t miss a minute.

If the live performance has an interval or two, the broadcast will too. You can stretch your legs or order a drink at the bar.

If a dancer executes a move that makes your heart skip a beat, don’t hold back. Clap, cheer, leap to your feet.

This is not a cinema – this is a royal concert hall.



If you love being swept up in a Tchaikovsky score, don't miss the heart-wrenching arias of Big Screen Opera.
