Dance (All Night, London)

Dance (All Night, London) is a collective dance performance, in collaboration with 10 dance schools from around the East End, each representing a different style of movement, from Cuban Rueda to Chinese Dance and Argentine Tango. On the night, dancers paraded through the streets of East London coming together in Exchange Square, Broadgate where they danced alongside each other. From 10pm to 1am, the square, illuminated and transformed into a temporary stage, was taken over by teachers from each school offering dance lessons to the public in their chosen styles. The project encouraged audiences to come and dance in the square, to experience these vibrant rhythms and learn something new. When the lessons were over the space became an open dance floor until the early hours of the morning, with playlists and headphones available via silent disco.
