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.

Since Autumn 2021 East London Dance have delivered Leap of Faith in partnership with English National Ballet. Through this partnership we are delighted to be further improving physical and mental wellbeing, signposting more people to older adults’ programmes and providing participants with subsidised ENB event tickets, that include access behind the scenes and to inspiring talks from the production’s creative professionals.

For 2024, Leap of Faith will be housed at English National Ballet’s purpose-built dance studios in Canning Town for our in-person weekly class.

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!

Classes take place every Friday in the Linden Studio at English National Ballet’s new home the Mulryan Centre for Dance, 41 Hopewell Square, London, E14 0SY.
