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 September 2020 classes will return via the online platform Zoom, with the plan to resume in-person classes once it is deemed safe enough to do so.

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!

Zoom session details for Fri 11 Sep – Fri 9 Oct:
Check in: 10am
Class: 10.15-11.15am
Feedback: 11.15-11.30am
