We are offering a free online taster session on Friday 22 October from 10-11:30am. To join us sign up here

Leap of Faith is an open dance class for older people. They meet weekly and over the years have worked with a range of top choreographers and performed at fantastic venues, including Stratford Circus Arts Centre, City Hall, the Southbank Centre, Sadler’s Wells and Trafalgar Square.

From Autumn 2021 classes will be a mix of online (via Zoom) and in-person sessions.

Under the direction of Molly Wright, Leap of Faith challenges the preconceptions around older dancers and aims to profile their work alongside other high-quality, professional dance companies.

The class is for open-minded people who want to learn exciting dance styles, meet new people, perform, and of course… have fun!
