East London Youth Dance Company – Summer 2020 Film

Lockdown may have changed the way that East London Youth Dance Company have been able to train but it hasn’t diminished one iota of their creative passion, talent and resilience.

Over the summer of 2020 the company members got together for weekly online classes to explore themes of Black Lives Matter, identity, dance and unity. The result is this fantastically uplifting short film that can’t help but put a smile on your face, but don’t take our word for it, get watching!
