Historian and curator Lucy Worsley and Strictly Come Dancing star Len Goodman, take to the floor to reveal the untold story of British dance. This three part series offers a fascinating insight into British society, exploring how the nation's love of dance has always been more than just mastering the moves and feeling the rhythm. It's about sex and seduction, power and politics, economics and of course, romance. They explore how dancing went from being frowned upon as dangerous and debauched in the 17th century to being celebrated as an essential social skill in the 18th century.

Less than two years after choreographer Roland Petit's death, La Scala's staging of the 1965 ballet Notre Dame de Paris gives the opportunity to re-examine what is considered one of his masterpieces. This Notre-Dame moves on from 19th-century ballet versions of Victor Hugo's novel to tell a streamlined, rather less sentimental story. The score by Maurice Jarre is relentlessly dark and Yves Saint Laurent's costumes range from simple, colourful tunics to Quasimodo's grey cloak. Italian star Roberto Bolle is Quasimodo opposite Natalia Osipova, the former Bolshoi star's Esmeralda, who performs gravity-defying leaps for which she is famous.
