East London Dance

East London Dance works to develop a dynamic, diverse and inclusive dance culture for communities and artists across, and beyond, East London.

East London Dance has been a pioneer of dance development throughout the East London boroughs for over 20 years*. From our base in the London Borough of Newham, we produce a range of dance experiences for everyone in the culturally-rich communities of East London. We promote creative and personal development through dance for people of all ages, and offer progression routes, training and professional development for young dancers, artists and dance leaders. We produce an inspirational programme of dance performances, brining national and international dance to East London and promoting dance made in East London to wider audiences.

Four key values inform all our work:
Reflecting and celebrating the diversity and internationalism of our East London communities
Encouraging access to dance for all, regardless of ability or age
Promoting the value of dance in developing healthy and cohesive communities
A commitment to excellence across the full spectrum of our work
