Across May 2019, East London Dance joined forces with long-term partners Sadler’s Wells (presenting Candoco Dance Company) and Studio Wayne McGregor alongside local arts organisations to bring a range of free dance activity and performances to the Olympic Park as part of International Quarter London’s Your Stratford Stage.
We were proud to present a wide variety of free performance and workshops from dance artists including the creators of the UK’s biggest under 18 dance battle event New Movementz, fierce female dance crew Myself UK and inclusive Latin Ballroom specialists Step Change Studios alongside University of East London’s Dance: Urban Practice Undergraduates and our own wonderful participants from On The Move (aged 10-16), East London Youth Dance Company (aged 14-21) and Leap of Faith (aged 65+).
With hip hop, house, krump, contemporary, tango and more represented, plus the chance for everyone to take part, Your Stratford Stage had something for everyone.
