Name of CreatorNational Resource Centre for Dance
DescriptionOfficial Reference Number: GB 1881 XZM

Scope and Content:
The collection contains cuttings about individuals, companies, dance forms, and other dance-related subjects. The cuttings are primarily from the five major UK national newspapers: The Times, The Guardian, The Financial Times, The Independent, and The Telegraph. Other UK newspapers are represented sporadically. The few cuttings from foreign newspapers are primarily from the USA. Although the majority of the cuttings date from 1982 to 2000, donations by individuals, companies, and other archives have added clippings from earlier years to the collection.
ArrangementUsual-paper-size (A4) cuttings are stored alphabetically in filing cabinets; this is the majority of the collection. Larger articles (A3 size) are stored alphabetically in flat, oversize boxes. The large British companies (Royal Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet, English National Ballet, Rambert Dance Company, and London Contemporary Dance Theatre) have their own boxes, filed in year order.
Related MaterialNewspaper cuttings that are part of a special collection are catalogued within the papers files of that collection.

Custodial HistoryFrom 1982 to 1999, NRCD staff clipped the daily editions of the five major UK newspapers and started clipping the weekend editions in 1999. In 2000, it was decided to clip only the weekend editions of these newspapers because by that time, they had internet sites holding searchable 'archives' of articles. The NRCD stopped clipping newspapers entirely in 2004.
