Leap of Faith - Dance Class for People 60+

In partnership with East London Dance - please book onto our classes here.

Leap of Faith is an open dance class for older people, welcoming anyone 60+ to experience different dance styles, meet new people and have opportunities to perform. Leap of Faith challenges the preconceptions around older dancers and aims to profile their work alongside other high-quality, professional dance companies.

Since Autumn 2021, East London Dance have delivered Leap of Faith in partnership with English National Ballet. Through this partnership we are delighted to be further improving physical and mental wellbeing, signposting more people to older adults’ programmes, and providing participants with subsidised ENB event tickets, that include access behind the scenes and to inspiring talks from the production’s creative professionals.

Under the direction of Molly Wright, Leap of Faith meets weekly at English National Ballet’s purpose-built dance studios in Canning Town, the Mulryan Centre for Dance, 41 Hopewell Square, London, E14 0SY.  Leap of Faith have worked with a range of top choreographers and performed at fantastic venues over the years, including Stratford Circus Arts Centre, City Hall, the Southbank Centre, Sadler’s Wells and Trafalgar Square.

The cost of classes are 10 classes (a term) for £36. You can purchase here.

The class is for open-minded people who want to learn exciting dance styles, meet new people, perform, and of course… have fun!
