East London Dance 25th Anniversary

East London dance have been successfully nurturing some of the capital’s most exciting talent for 25 years, helping them make a significant impact on the dance world. Coming together to celebrate this landmark were some of these success stories themselves…

Avant Garde Dance have been working with East London Dance for nearly 8 years, so it was a natural invitation to be asked to join in with their celebrations and do this in typical ELD party style. To promote our joint focus on youth dance and support of emerging talent, East London Dance programmed Avant Garde Youth – billed as the best youth dance companies in the UK.

ELD also paid homage to our successful concept night Collabo and did their very own ‘Collabo’, merging two successful concepts nights they have been involved with, our annual festival Collabo and 60 x 60. ELD invited Artistic Director Tony to direct this special Uber Collabo working with East London Dance’s key artists, from past present and future.

Tony work with Rosie Whitney Fish (Dear Lido), Myself UK, Unity UK, C-12 Dance Theatre, Sean Graham, Katie P and of course Avant Garde Dance and the result was whirlwind of moments through some of these artists key ELD moments.
