best day ever..!

This Spring we held a youth gala performance platform in the theatre at Oxford House as part of our partnership with the THAMES Dance Consortium which saw performances produced by East London dance organisations Laban, Chisenhale Dance Space and East London Dance through bespoke dance activities in Tower Hamlets Schools.

At Green Candle we worked with our Youth Dance Company BanglaHop! based at Secondary School Mulberry School for Girls, along with two feeder Primary Schools – Redlands and Smithy Street – who worked with a fusion of Bangra, Bollywood and Street Dance to create their performance piece Blame it on the Bollywood.

The students had a fantastic experience which they shared with us as well as joining in celebrating our 30th birthday in the lower gallery of Oxford House after the show.
