We’re here to champion and grow east London’s dance scene.

Through our dance activity and professional support, we’re committed to co-creation, inclusivity, equity and accessibility and to representation of the diverse east London communities we serve.

We trust in the ambition of the artists, producers and participants we work with, supporting them to be the creative leaders that are essential to developing stronger local communities.
